Fall 2009 not offered
|Certificates: International Relations|
Although it is geographically situated in Europe, Ireland's history has many themes in common with the histories of the developing nations of the world: colonial settlement, cultural imperialism, and economic dependency. These issues as well as those of independence and the formation of a nation-state and a national culture in the aftermath of colonialism will be discussed in this course. This course will also deal with the peace process in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic's emergence as a "Celtic Tiger."
This course requires students to respond to primary documents in history through a series of response papers to primary sources from Irish history and to write their own historical account of some aspect of Ireland's past.
