Overview

As a modern European nation with a fascinating although often turbulent past, Ireland represents an ideal prism for the study of history, literature, and politics. The role of Ireland as an emerging independent nation, as well as part of a broader matrix of British and global history is explored, whilst its outstanding contribution to English literature in writers such as Wilde, Beckett, Joyce and Yeats also feature as part of this absorbing degree. Students can also look to
study the causes of the Troubles in Northern Ireland and reasons why its peace process acts as a template for other conflicts across the globe.

Subject is available through Honours. More information here
