Best of luck with the second exam, due Monday May 4th at 11:59 pm!
In conjunction with this semester's look at twentieth-century Ireland, post-independence Irish culture, and the revival of Irish-language literature, please consider attending an event on Thursday, April 30th, from 11:00 am to 12:15 pm with Alan Titley, who has recently published an English-language translation of Cré na Cille by the noted Irish author Máirtín Ó Cadhain.
Our take-home midterm exam is now available. The due date for submission is midnight, March 11th. Best of luck!
For the group consultations starting next week, it is very important that you bring a laptop if you have one to our meeting. If you don't have one, I will provide you with a loaner for that day's session. We'll need the laptops to work collaboratively on each group's respective tasks.
Although there will be some overlap with the Eighteenth-Century Collections Online database, you might find help in finding images through 18th Connect's search portal. Notice that you can select items with "Illustrations" by click on that facet selection on the right hand side of the search page. Scroll down to the bottom and look to the right.
Bobst library has given us an early bonus by placing all four books (not just Townshend, Lee, and Wills, but Donnelly, too) on reserve. Feel free to access them via the Course Reserves desk in Bobst rather than purchase. Another great job by Bobst course reserves!
Welcome to the start of spring 2015, and to HIST/IRISH UA 183-001. You'll find all the necessary course information here on this website, including the syllabus, assignments, schedule, and information about readings.
The only thing recommended prior to the start of classes is that students make arrangements for access to the four books used during the semester. Some of the books will be available on Bobst reserve, and two will be available at the NYU bookstore. All are available for purchase online, so make those purchases, if need be, early. Consult the textbook information under the syllabus tab for details.
I very much look forward to working through the fascinating details of modern Ireland with all of you!
