Ireland is a nation known for its striking beauty, its political turmoil, and its long and illustrious literary history. We invite you to join SUNY Broome Professors Mary Donnelly and Andrew Haggerty for LIT 277: Irish Literature, followed by an eight-day trip to the Emerald Isle!
The course itself will be a survey of Irish literature from the Bronze Age (the Táin Bó Cúailnge, or The Cattle Raid at Cooley) to the modern era (the Troubles). Authors covered will include William Butler Yeats, James Joyce, Edna O’Brien and Brian Friel.
Once the semester ends, we will be leaving for a trip to explore Ireland through the literary lens. We’ll be visiting Dublin, Limerick, and Galway to see the locations that inspired the imaginations of our authors. Local agents Carr’s Holidays are designing an exclusive travel package just for the class.
Like all Literature classes, this is a Writing Emphasis course section. Students must complete ENG 110 before registering. Additional fees associated with international travel.
