Week 8 – “Adulteration & the Nation” Lloyd

November 14, 2007

I really appreciated this article simply for its use of Irish literature, which I love. It’s interesting that the big-name cities in Ireland were “sites of cultural hybridization as well as centres of imperial authority and capital domination…[because] they represent concentrations of an English domination which penetrates every level of Irish social life” (405). I’ve been writing my paper on imperialism and its pervasiveness in every aspect of life in order for it to be able to keep control over its colonies. The very centers of Irish culture were infiltrated with English imperialism and made to marginalize those of Ireland who protested domination.
