Welcome to textscontextscultures.ie
This website is still a work in progress, but when it’s done it will focus on the study of the cultural context in the online world or modern Irish texts. Our aim is to provide our readers with a variety of interesting cultural information as well as specific literary works, not only about Ireland and by Irish authors. This will provide the much needed context and serve as a basis for a complex analysis and comparison between various cultures.
By creating such a website we aim to highlight not differences, but similarities between various nations and cultures. With the rapid development of the Internet and communication infrastructure in general, one could say the world is shrinking. What was distant and exotic yesterday can be easily accessible today. Completely different cultures, developed without any contact with each other, can now meet. And the culture shock that could appear could be quite severe. This is where textscontextscultures.ie comes in!
By creating an easily accessible online platform where you can get to know different cultures, our aim is to reduce and potentially eliminate this culture shock so many people suffer from. We believe that by painting the whole picture, we educate our readers and contribute to making the world we live in a better place
