Program Description

Founded by Viking invaders, ruled by Norman and English conquerors, 
embattled and finally liberated by Irish and Anglo-Irish rebels, 
Dublin is one of Europe's most historic urban centers. For over a 
thousand years the city has been the home of insurgent genius, the 
battleground of political and literary cultures in conflict, and the 
inspiration for visionary idealism. And for the last two decades it 
has been one of the most vibrant, entertaining cities in the world. 
We will encounter the city's history in its great literature and 
museums; we will engage the city's living traditions--its music, 
theater, and politics--on a daily basis; and we will explore the 
energetic street life of its urban center and the spectacular 
shoreline and mountains to the north and south. The group will stay 
in shared apartments in the prestigious Trinity College, founded in 1592.

English 250, Literary Dublin: One of the most important literary 
cities of the Western tradition for much of its thousand-year 
history, Dublin has produced great books and great writers out of all 
proportion to its size and political prominence. Dublin writers have 
authored masterpieces in every genre, from Swift's satires to 
Synges's ground-breaking plays to the three pillars of literary 
modernism: Yeats's poetry, Joyce's fiction, and O'Casey's drama. We 
will visit the sites of seminal works, such as St. Patrick's 
Cathedral, where Swift was Dean, Joyce's tower in Sandycove, and the 
famous Abbey and Gate Theatres. There will be midterm and a final 
exams and a short paper.

English 300, Introduction to Creative Writing: The course 
investigates the process and practice of creative writing in the 
major literary genres, i.e., fiction, poetry, and non-fiction, and 
students will create texts in each genre. Regular readings will 
provide examples and critical vocabulary, students' creative work 
will be read and discussed in workshop format, and student writers 
will meet regularly with the instructor to discuss the principles of 
writing literary texts, assure creative output, and consider editing 
and revision options.
