Literary Cities: Literary Dublin: In the Heart of the Hibernian Metropolis
Spring 2021 - Professor Jaurretche is a very caring and passionate professor. She obviously knew tons about the texts that we covered and led really interesting discussions. We would usually read one book or play each week, in addition to supplemental historical reading. There are no pop quizzes or anything so you don’t have to stress too much about falling behind. Your grade is based on research projects/essays. The one downside of this class is that there was only one meeting each week so we didn’t get to dive very deeply into any of the materials by analyzing them for, say, two days. That being said, I feel like I truly learned so much about Irish history and culture through this class, not to mention literature. If any of those things interest you, I would highly recommend this class. I’m also selling the course reader for $30, if you’re interested text **********.
