Wales: Culture and identity - Audio

Wales: Culture and identity - Audio by The Open University

The Open University

Wales is a vibrant nation with its own language, musical heritage and strong cultural identity. Central to this identity and a source of national pride, is rugby, which is deeply embedded in the national consciousness and explored in ‘Rugby and welsh identity’. Away from the sports pitch, this collection also looks at place and belonging, gender and race, nationalism and language, class, work, and political and cultural representation in Wales. This material forms part of The Open University course D172 Contemporary Wales.
