This course will be looking at the changing nature of Irish society since the economic boom of Celtic Tiger Ireland in the 1990's. EU membership, US investment and the effects of global internationalism have brought about radical culture transformations in the country which in turn are altering conventional meanings of Irishness and Irish identity. We will be looking at representations of this changing Ireland in literature and film, paying attention to issues such as new technologies, post-feminism, sexualities, race and ethnicity. Texts will include Martin McDonagh's In Bruges, Anne Enright's novel The Wig My Father Wore, and the poetry of Leanne O'Sullivan.
