The English department is thrilled to offer English 3335: Celtic Lit. and Culture, led by Professor Christine Chaney.
This Study Abroad program runs from August 24 through September 15, 2018, and gives students the chance to explore the sacred, beautiful Celtic landscapes of Ireland and Scotland. We will visit everything from ancient holy sites to spectacular coastal beaches to thriving urban neighborhoods, studying Celtic literature, history, culture, and faith in the context of peacemaking.
We will anchor ourselves in the great capital cities of Edinburgh and Dublin and explore from there, discovering both ancient high crosses and modern challenges. There will be opportunities for learning with Christian reconciliation organizations working through the dark legacy of sectarianism, as well as opportunities to discover the joy of stories, music, and art, too — everything from ancient Celtic myths to Harry Potter. There will be time for faith and reflection as well as excursions to epic sites of history and culture.
Before departure, students will also be expected to participate in several spring quarter orientation sessions and some summer reading by way of preparation.
Applications due to the Study Abroad office before March 1, 2018.
For more information, contact the Study Abroad office.
Destinations and attractions:
Dublin, Edinburgh, Belfast, The Highlands, Stirling Castle, Silver Strand Beach, Newgrange Monument, Celtic High Crosses, Wicklow Mountains, “Harry Potter Train” to Mallaig, Scotland, Ferry across the Irish Sea — and more!
