This academic program at The Evergreen State College comprises a study of Ireland through history, songs, poetry, Gaelic language, stories, instrumental music, film, drama, and literature. By focusing on history, pre- and early Christian nature-based spirituality and expressive culture early in fall quarter, we will set the stage for understanding Irish reactions to colonialism, the Famine, and the social upheavals taking place at the turn of the twentieth century. Winter quarter will include Irish America, the EU, and modern struggles for Irish identity. In spring we travel to Donegal in Ireland, and we will complete our work by developing a significant (25-page) essay combining the theory of Irish Studies with the practice of experiencing Ireland first-hand.
