Track 1: The Arts Past and Present: Ireland

Audio and Video - http://www.open.edu/openlearn/history...

Tracks in this podcast:

1 The Arts Past and Present: Ireland A short introduction to this album.

2 Attitudes to architectural heritage How Ireland's built heritage is being rapidly reshaped.

3 Rebuilding after the rebellion How the new government abandoned certain buildings but chose to preserve others after the rebellion and the civil war.

4 Ancient heritage How the Irish free state restored ancient sites to consciously reconnect with a more glorious past.

5 Nineteenth century romantic reinvention How nationalists were quick to see the power of cultural symbols for political ends.

6 Cashel Castle, Tipperary The ancient monuments at Cashel provide a sense of a romantic past without oppressors.

7 The fate of country houses Why the big estates symbolised the old regime, and so were burned, stripped and redistributed.

8 Castletown House Appreciating the stately home as a monument to Irish craftsmanship and acheivement.

9 Changing attitudes to restoration St Mary's church becomes a trendy bar: how Ireland has moved on.

10 Unravelling the issues Anne Laurence, a History Professor at Open University, explains the significance of Ireland's built heritage to the reconstruction of its national identity.
