Film, Media and Popular Culture in Ireland: Cityscapes, Landscapes, Soundscapes

Film, Media and Popular Culture in Ireland: Cityscapes, Landscapes, Soundscapes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

McLoone (media studies, U. of Ulster) takes a wide-ranging look at contemporary Irish culture through perspectives rooted in the economy, the peace process, and the country's entry into global culture. His book examines the impact of these factors on the film, television, and music produced in Ireland, primarily since the 1990s. While dispassionate and scholarly, the author also celebrates what has been gained in the new Ireland and laments what has been lost in Irish cultural identity. Concerns addressed include the secularization of Ireland and popular culture's assault on the Church, changing cityscapes and landscapes, the "death" of politics, sexual freedom and personal liberation, the representation of unionist culture in the north, and related topics. This volume is distributed by ISBS. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A collection covering a wide variety of media in Ireland, including broadcasting, film, popular music, radio, and popular culture. Together, these essays map out the role various media have played in the process of 're-imagining Ireland' over the last fifteen years, touching on aspects of Irish cultural identity and the (re)construction of notions of Irishness. The book addresses the more contemporary implications of both the peace process in Northern Ireland and the 'Celtic Tiger' phenomenon in the South. Contents include: Introduction: The Changing Configurations of Irish Studies (1990-2005); Boxed-in?: The Aesthetics of Film and Television --- Section One: Irish Film. National Cinema and Cultural Identity; Maureen O'Hara: The Political Power of the Feisty Colleen; A Landscape Peopled Differently: Thaddeus O'Sullivan's 'December Bride'; Cinema and the City: Re-imagining Belfast and Dublin; Challenging Colonial Traditions: British Cinema in the Celtic Fringe --- Section Two: Irish Bro
