For four weeks, you will live in Derry and engage in an intensive interdisciplinary examination of culture through history, literature and music, as well as the environment. Through your exploration of the city, where pivotal confrontations known as The Troubles took place, you will learn about the divisions between Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland, and how understanding the background of these divisions has served to break down the wall of ignorance and prejudice, in turn leading to the building of bridges of understanding and fostering a new era of concord and optimism. Lectures by historians, literary experts, writers, and musicians as well as visits to historic sites, museums, and local happenings are an integral part of the program. Through the “Walking and Talking” component of the course, you will also take five or six day-long hikes through the coastal peninsulas of Donegal in the Republic of Ireland, the Glenveagh National Park, and the Giant’s Causeway in Antrim, Northern Ireland.
