Cultural analysis of the Irish Travellers: nomads in industrialized nations.
This paper is for a cultural anthropology course. Incorporate general themes of cultural anthropology and reffer back to different definitions of culture as they pertain to the papers topic. My prof has approved my proposal to write about nomadic cultures in industrialized nations. I want this paper to discuss the culture of the nomadic Irish Travellers. Describe their way of life. Compare and Contrast with settled culture of the region. Investigate struggles with racism, integration, ethnicity, cultural identity, outside perception, resistance, and the evolution of their movement. Associate their struggles with their cultural devotion and motivation to perpetuate the movement. Draw parallels with gypsies& other nomads toward the end (roma, sinti, sami…relevant cultures!)
