LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2000. 320pp looks unused. Screening Ireland examines a century of screen representations of Ireland from a cultural studies perspective. Skillfully analysing historical and contemporary examples from both film and television, this innovative book provides a clear, theoretically-informed synthesis of the most influential research on Irish audio-visual culture in the last decade. The opening chapters discuss the pertinent features of Irish history and analyse critical debates about Ireland's cultural development in the twentieth century, favouring and exploring postcolonial interpretations. Part II opens with a concise history of television in Ireland, from its radio precedents to a consideration of its global satellite future and goes on to discuss chat shows and soaps, sit coms, documentaries and dramas of the troubles. Featuring key bullet-pointed header questions and relevant statistical data, Screening Ireland is aimed at students of Irish Studies, Film and Cultural Studies. It will also be of interest to serious journalists and cultural commentators on Ireland, and is also accessible to the non-specialist reader with a keen interest in Ireland and its representation in the media.
