ENGL2102 - Ireland: Past, Present, Future - taught by Professor Joseph Nugent
Program Dates: July 23-August 21, 2016
2016 is a very exciting year in Ireland’s celebration of its past as we recall the Easter Rising of 1916 and Ireland’s march to at least partial freedom. This course will celebrate this time of memory and memorial by exploring Ireland’s rich heritage of revival and revolution, then turning our informed gaze to its exciting future. Through its poetry and drama; its novels, short stories, sounds, images, and film, we’ll engage as actively as possible with the past. The Irish Revival, the Celtic Twilight, the rise of Irish nationalism, and the subsequent War of Independence are on our agenda as we explore the century that brought Ireland to where she stands today.
