’s uncle and the pub-crawling pseudo-bohemian life of an undergraduate university student, played out against the backdrop of a capital city of an Ireland suspended in stasis between empire and nation, insular traditionalism and European modernism and cosmopolitanism, the dead hand of history and an emerging new world order teetering on the brink of World War II. All these various realities co-exist, collide and collude, conflate and confound and confuse one another. Recycled fictional characters revolt against their (fictional) author and recompose the text, while the

‘Christendom’, which he defines as ‘a civilisation where the structures, institutions, and culture were all supposed to reflect the Christian nature of the society’ (Taylor 1999: 17). In its purest form, this was the confessional state, long the norm across Europe, in which throne and altar were united so that the law privileged a particular Christian Church and enforced its moral teachings. Over several centuries, however, secularism weakened this arrangement and eventually ‘dethroned’ Christendom, a process that often involved violence, especially in Catholic countries

conference in Cambridge the previous summer and he had begged me for an excuse to visit the ‘sexiest destination in Europe’. Hans’s views can be regarded with suspicion, if at all representative, as he is now outside the academy. There was Doctor Claude de Ville from the Department of Sociology outside Lyon. I will just call him Claude, as he had no patience with disguise. Claude is a distant relation of Durkheim and for that reason 139 eih ch-8.P65 139 26/3/03, 15:15 140 Slattery his opinions are given more credit than they deserve. He resisted visiting Ireland for

once an instrument of British policy and, even more pernicious, an instrument of progress. A section of the essay was headed ‘Against Modernism’. Never averse to hyperbole Pearse claimed that the old Irish, ‘two thousand years ago’, had the best and noblest education system ever known amongst men. Here he meant the schools described in the legends of Cúchulainn. In lectures and his essays he was, as one of his friends Joseph Holloway put it, ‘indiscriminately eulogistic to absurdity’ about the literary merits of the Gaelic sagas that he came to treat as history.8 As

histories [...] testify to [...] a spiral away and extrapolation from Europe and the West’, and Said, in saying this, has sought to wrest Yeats’s work away from ‘European high modernism’ (in Ingelbien, 2009:30). In fact, Said justifies his dismissal of the revisionist claim that Ireland is not a postcolonial nation by arguing that it is ludicrous to assert that ‘Ireland is a European nation like France or Germany’ (Said, 2003:177; Ingelbien, 2009:30). Raphael Ingelbien also describes Kiberd’s attitude to continental Europe in Inventing Ireland as one of ‘schizophrenic

reflecting Catholic teaching. Verbal genuflection before the social prescriptions of papal encyclicals was to found in this document although, as Joe Larragy (2014: 201) notes, ‘Catholic social power rather than Catholic social teaching was the prevalent factor in the Irish case and for a long time the formula suited an authoritarian church in a parsimonious state dominated by the rural petit bourgeoisie.’ But times, churches and states change. In 1973, when both parts of Ireland entered what was then the European Economic Community (EEC), a secular, professional

James Carey, in particular, critiqued Hall’s retention of any form of communication model, with its emphasis on transmission, for the study of social processes, and stressed instead the ritual aspect of culture in the places and spaces of everyday life (see Carey, 2002: 129). The development of anthropologically inflected approaches to media technology, innovation and everyday life in European media studies arose in part out of this tradition (Silverstone, 1994

Non-elite cosmopolitanism in the Brexit era

Trump spoke of immigration being a major problem because it was ‘changing the culture’ of Europe. Notwithstanding the absurd implication that any ‘culture’ ever exists without change, Trump’s anti-cosmopolitan comments deliberately conveyed a pejorative racialised use of ‘immigrant’ and ‘immigration’ to mean people of colour, and especially Muslims, regardless of their citizenship or country of birth. This rhetorical use of ‘immigration’ and associated terms resonates with much media and political discourse in the UK. So white British nationals moving from the UK have

Two days after the attack rocked his country, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg addressed the memorial service in Oslo Cathedral with promises that Norway would never surrender its social-democratic values and that the answer to terror is more democracy, not less. Norway refused to follow the path of the United States or European nations towards extensive counterterrorism policies that damage civil liberty
