Spring 2018: Literary Locations—Dublin

Portrait of James Joyce by Djuna Barnes

Program Description
Study the work of great Irish writers on location in Dublin! In English 4400-Literary Locations and its companion, English 5193: Individual Studies, we will follow James Joyce’s Ulysses from Martello Tower, where the book begins, to the Hill of Howth, where it ends. We will stop by Davy Byrne’s for a gorgonzola sandwich, visit the cemetary where Bloom thinks about life and death and reenact scenes on the very streets where they were imagined. We will also read the poetry of W. B. Yeats and visit the Lake Isle of Innisfree, Benbulben and Yeats' grave. We will also explore Glendalough in the Wicklow Mountains and visit Glasnevin Cemetery, where many Irish heroes are buried.

To go on the trip, students must enroll in English 4400: Literary Locations (SP’18) for three credit hours and English 5193: Individual Studies (SU’18) for one credit hour. The English 4400: Literary Locations course will be taught by Professor Sebastian Knowles (.1). The Dublin trip will be led by Assistant Professor Jesse Schotter (.1)
