Ирландская идентичность в романе Североирландского конфликта: динамика развития в контексте теории постнационализма
The paper focuses on study of Irish national identity represented in the Troubles novels in the period from 19070-s to 2012. The research is aimed at dynamics of national identity. Analysis shows that national identity in early Troubles novels is based on three major content categories: narrating political history, religious and spatial dimensions. In later periods the model is changed seriously. National identity becomes more pluralistic. History acquires a discourse character and becomes relativistic: the past serves no longer as a starting point in construction of national identity, it enters into a dialogue with it. The impact of religion becomes less tough and the ties with the national space weaken.
