    Abstract

    This article considers the apparent homogenisation of cultures. Contrary to this view, I focus on the incorporation of novel circumstances into existing structures in a small Irish fishing community displaced by modernity. One cannot consider them as separately structured, however. I use Foucauldian analysis to suggest that modernity, in repressing separateness, may also be productive of it.
