PHIL 6686 Making Memory: History, Story, Image (Fall: 3 )
1916 marks the 100-year anniversary of the Easter Rising that began Ireland's struggle for independence and the fateful Battle of the Somme that witnessed the decimation of the 36th Ulster Regiment during WW I. Both events proved seminal within a divided Ireland and both were defined as "blood sacrifices." The goal of this course is to explore the contested history of Ireland and Britain by focusing on these events and the commemorations that will mark the upcoming centenary. An interdisciplinary course, we will work with Philosophy and Studio Art.
