INTR 301 - The Irish World in Literature, Religion, and History


FDR: HU
Credits: 3

Prerequisite: WRIT-100 or equivalent. Only open to students admitted to the Spring study abroad course in Ireland (ENGL/REL 387). This seminar seeks to immerse the student in the literature, religious traditions, history, and culture of Ireland through a range of media and methods. The primary focus of the course is on Irish literary expressions and religious beliefs and traditions from the pre-historic period to the modern day, with a particular emphasis on the modern (early 20thcentury) Irish world. Through literary readings (both primary and secondary), texts of cultural history, memoir, and folklore, film (an increasingly potent form of expression in Ireland), and works of religion, theology, and spiritual exploration, we seek to understand the major movements in Ireland that led to its great cultural achievements in the 20th century, as well as the religious and spiritual issues and tensions that run throughout Irish literature and culture. This course is the orientation and preparation for the spring-term course English/Religion 387, enabling students to be extremely well prepared when they arrive in Ireland. Brown, Conner.
