Literature and Film: The Stories of Ireland (LITR 210). Literary and cinematic works will be drawn from the long tradition of Irish poetry, fiction, and drama. Students will also explore the cinematic output of Ireland. The course and international experience will examine the use of narrative as a medium to share the Irish experience, both in Ireland and the United States. Students will explore the the inspirations, contexts and spaces storytellers used in the development of their narrative works. Students develop critical skills necessary to explore literary narratives. The course content will be delivered by scholars both from Ireland and the United States.

There will be an extensive pre-departure orientation on culture, health and safety, as well as academic meetings prior to the departure from the U.S.
