migration and the Irish abroad; contemporary Irish society. This course
can be taken either by students wishing to update or refresh their
knowledge of Irish Studies or by students wishing to accumulate a credit
towards a degree qualification in other humanities or social science

10th Anniversary Irish Writers in London Summer School
First established by the Irish Studies Centre in 1996, the summer school
runs for two nights per week for six weeks and aims to provide an
informal but informative setting for students wishing to study Irish
literature over the summer. The course consists of a mixture of
lectures, seminars, readings and cultural activities.

Each week an established Irish writer comes to read and speak about
their work to the students. Two evenings prior to this, students read,
discuss and analyse extracts of the writer’s work with the course tutor.
Students read and learn about a broad spectrum of Irish writing
including fiction, autobiography, drama, travel writing and poetry and
gain valuable insights into the different approaches such types of
writing involve.

Our special guest writer at the Summer School in
2005 will be Edna O’Brien.
