The Program

This course offers intensive immersion in the culure and history of Ireland and Northern Ireland, primarily through the literature and narrative art of the island. Special attention is paid to the last hundred years, but doing so requires a broader understanding of how the political and cultural history of Ireland continue to haunt and shape its present. Political history involves most especially the island's ever evolving relationship to Great Britain, and now to the European Union, while Irish culture adds a complex relationship to it's mythical Gaelic past.

Though anchored in the literature of Ireland, the course will offer students a better understanding of how narrative-- the stories a perople tells of itself-- both reveals and shapes a culture, society, and nation. Such an understanding will be useful for any student hoping to be involved with the world around her, whether through business, education, the arts, or simply as a citizen of the world.
