Study the writing of modernist giant James Joyce while exploring Dublin and environs. In this program literary work will be used as a springboard into conversations about culture, politics and history, as well as our own experiments in creative writing.

You will choose between two courses:
* ARHU351(cross-listed as ENLG369L and HONR349L; GenEd: Humanities) is an in-depth in-situ study of one of the most influential works in modernist literary history: Ulysses.
* ARHU269I (cross-listed in ENGL  and HONR; GenEd: under consideration for Humanities and Scholarship in Practice) is a creative writing workshop featuring The Dubliners and Portrait of the Artist as Young Man by James Joyce.

Students will stay in hostels both in Dublin and Galway with shared rooms; hostels have access to laundry, breakfast included, and internet.  Students will also have a few days off from the program to travel independently in Ireland should they choose.
