Giollain, Diarmuid O.


Gives an introduction to the study of Irish traditional society and of Irish folklore.This book, entrely in Gaelic, introduces the field and the study of Irish folklore to Irish speakers. While the author?'s Locating Irish Folklore: Tradition, Modernity, Identity (CUP, 2000) deals with the intellectual problem of the invention of a concept of folklore and its application in an Irish context, An D?chas Agus an Domhan describes in detail the rich traditional culture of the Gaeltacht to which folklorists applied their training and defines the field of folklore as a scholarly discourse. It is the first such book written primarily for an Irish readership and one of the very few in any language that considers both the nature of traditional society and the discourse of folklore together. It gives a thematic treatment of vernacular worlds--concentrating on ?time?, ?place? and ?community?--and of their changing relationships with the widening horizons of the state, modernity, and globalization. It is based on the ninteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century evidence of folklore, anthropology, (auto)biographical literature, and history.Cad is b?aloideas ann agus c? seasann s? idir an d?chas agus an domhan? Tuigtear de ghn?th gur rud d?chasach agus gur ghn? th?bhachtach de chuid na socha? traidisi?nta ? an b?aloideas. Ach bh? caidreamh riamh ag an socha? thraidisi?nta leis an saol lasmuigh: n? raibh s? neamhsple?ch ar an st?t, ar fh?rsa? eacnam?la n?isi?nta agus idirn?isi?nta, ar thiarna? tal?n, ar an eaglais, ar an gcult?r l?annta, ar id?-eola?ochta? polaiti?la. Tugann an leabhar seo cur s?os ar an gcult?r saibhir traidisi?nta ar chuirscol?ir? b?aloidis suim ann agus tugann s? sainmh?ni? ar ghort sin an bh?aloidis mar dhiosc?rsa l?inn. Pl?ann s? go speisialta le tr? th?ama ar leithligh: ?am?, ?it? agus ?pobal?, agus tr?chtann s? orthu i gcomhth?acs na socha? traidisi?nta, leathn? an st?it, teacht chun cinn na nua-aoise agus g?ar? an domhandaithe. ?s?ideann s? fianaise ?n 19?, 20? agus 21? haois, agus ?n mb?aloideas, ?n antraipeola?ocht, ? (dh?r)bheathaisn?is? Gaeltachta agus ?n stair. Is ? an ch?ad bhunleabhar ar l?ann an bh?aloidis as Gaeilge ?'.Giollain, Diarmuid O. is the author of 'Duchas Agus an Domhan ', published 2005 under ISBN 9781859183892 and ISBN 1859183891.
