Summary... header image

This course combines Irish Studies with Literature and Music. It provides an integrated interdisciplinary programme of learning for students with a particular interest in modern and contemporary Irish culture.

The literature strand of the program explores Ireland's most accomplished writers in Irish and in English from the nineteenth century to the present, with Irish language material being presented in translation. The music strand provides a historical and theoretical approach to Irish music (and dance) practice during the same period, spanning traditional and popular games.
