Ireland on Film: Identity and Representation

Class at Faculty of Arts |

This text is not available in the current language. Showing version "cs".Syllabus



This course will explore representations of Ireland and the Irish through film. One of the central aims will be to analyse the ways in which Ireland has been portrayed by filmmakers ? as quaint and pastoral or conversely as a nation plagued by seemingly senseless violence ? and to explore how more recently these trajectories are becoming more complicated. In particular, we will focus upon questions of authenticity and imagination, the texts and contexts of the films, while taking into account the background of current debates in Irish cultural and literary studies involving post-colonialism and post- modernism.
