The Office of International Programs is sponsoring Joyce in Ireland, a summer course that runs from July 31 to August 22, 2009. Class will be held at the Center for Irish Programs- Dublin Office, overlooking St. Stephens Green. Students will investigate Joyce's works within the topography of Dublin. Students will take guided tours through Ireland's National Gallery, National Museum, International James Joyce Center, and the Phoenix Park. In addition to exploring Dublin, the class will travel to Counties Cork, Meath, Mayo, and Offaly to study Joyce's background. Students will spend at least one long weekend in Galway, taking in ancient castles, megalithic monuments, and royal residences.
Professor Joseph Nugent, an Assistant Professor of English in BC's Irish Studies department, will be teaching the course. The content of Joyce in Ireland is based on EN309, a course Professor Nugent teaches at BC, which has been mapping out Joyce's characters' journeys through the streets of Dublin.
