GFS 317 Inspired by the View: The Beauty and Boldness of Ireland
Reflection and introspection are essential to thinking creatively, regardless your field of study. Explore the history, culture and ecological make-up of the West of Ireland’s Burren region. Discover the artists, writers and ecologists who have drawn inspiration from this unique landscape and the history of Ireland in this region. Seminars and various outdoor expeditions emphasize how art, literature, and science continues to live beyond the confines of the studio or lab, but are shaped and influenced by its environment; aesthetically, politically and culturally. Through projects, presentations and writing, students convey their reflections on the experience of this Irish landscape, its history and the people. Course meets weekly and includes a four- week stay in the West of Ireland. Open to sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students.
Includes: airfare, accommodations (for all 4 weeks), studio access, some transportation, and various expeditions. This course requires an additional travel fee.
