A Novel Idea! Contemporary Irish Fiction

October 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Irish novelists have begun the process of fictionalizing the turbulent period in Northern Ireland known as “The Troubles” (1968-98), in an effort to interrogate trauma and attempt to conciliate the personal impact of the events. These novels grapple with difficult topics that arise during times of violent conflict but also demonstrate the redemptive power of the human spirit. Classes take place once a month for a three-month period. Students will read a novel by a different author each month and participate in discussions moderated by the instructor. 3 SESSIONS (includes light refreshments)
