Publication : Post Celtic Tiger Ireland
Exploring New Cultural Spaces
Cambridge Scholars Publishing – 2016
This collective volume provides the reader with an exploration of various artistic works which grew out of the post Celtic Tiger era in Ireland. The different cultural fields of interest studied in this book include theatre, photography, poetry, painting and cinema, as well as commemorative spaces. These different cultural voices enable one to explore Ireland, as a country located at a crossroads, in a kind of in-between space, and to wonder about the various political, economic, historical and social forces present in the country. The contributions interrogate Irish society within its pressent context, which is deeply impregnated by movement and transistion but also strongly connected to time, to past and to memory. This collection of essays also presents the way in which these artistic works intertwine with vaious approaches, artistic, aesthetic, sociologic, cinematographic, historical, and literary, in order to pinpoint the transformations induced by both the Celtic Tiger and its aftermath. The issues of globalisation, identy, place and creativity are all dealt with. In assessing the aftermath of the post-Celtic Tiger period, its impact and influences on today’s Irish society, the contributors also allude, incidentally, to its future evolution and trends.
