Study Abroad Coordinator: Colleen Boyle (c.boyle@neu.edu)

Information Session: November 4, 5-6 pm, 400B Holmes (there will be pizza!)

Term: Summer I

Courses:

  • ENGL3487: Film and Text Abroad: Irish Cinema
  • ENGL2600: Irish Literary Culture Abroad

Description:

In this program students will be introduced to modern Irish culture and society through its vibrant traditions of literature and film.  Students will focus on the exploration of Irish novels, short stories, and films using these as gateways to explore the island’s history, politics, monuments, architecture, landscapes, music, food, and folk culture.  Literature has long held a uniquely important place in Ireland, so students will have the opportunity to read Irish greats such as Wilde, Yeats, and Joyce, and modern prize-winners such as Seamus Heaney, Roddy Doyle, Anne Enright, and Colm Toibín.  Students will learn techniques of literary analysis and discover how literature situates itself in the rich life of the island.  Irish film production took off in the 1990s, but the explosion that brought the world powerful films such as In the Name of the Father and The Magdalene Laundries grew out of a long relationship between Ireland and cinema.  Students will be invited to explore this cinematic history as well as contemporary film production both experimental and mainstream.
