Course Description

Ireland is a small island with a remarkable story. Its people have had a significant influence on other societies, including the United States, through emigration. Its history is one of conquest and change, of the interaction of different cultures and of the struggle for national identity. Its culture, most notable its literature, is of great richness. I has produced four Nobel Literature Prize winners, Yeats, Shaw, Beckett and Heaney, as well the great novelists James Joyce. This class invites students to discover something of the Irish story and to learn about further opportunities in the Irish studies at Boston College.
