HUM 199 - Global Perspectives through an interdisciplinary study of Irish History and Culture

3 credits
Ireland offers an important socio-historical framework of the fluidity of identity and ethnicity. British imperialism, Famine, the impact of emigration on the United States, the decline and revival of indigenous culture, the civil rights campaign, and conflict and conflict resolution in Northern Ireland, all provide a platform for a valuable comparative study in the global context. The program will take place on campus at the Institute of Study Abroad Ireland in Donegal, in the Republic of Ireland. Over three weeks, students will cover a timeline from the Neolithic period of Irish history to the present day. The aim is to provide the opportunity for interdisciplinary and comparative thinking about the cultural and anthropological development of the Irish, through the earliest tribal settlements, through the colonisation experience, the experience of political, cultural and economic revolution, and the emergence of a modern Irish  Republic 100 years after independence.
