Learning Beyond the Classics: Screening the Irish Troubles

Learning Beyond the Classics: Screening the Irish Troubles


This Learning Beyond the Classics course looks at how political conflict in Ireland, from the 1916 Rebellion and the War of Independence up to and including what became known as “The Troubles” in the North of Ireland, has been represented on screen. The class will analyze a wide variety of cinematic texts, from mainstream commercial Hollywood to independent Irish and British films. Certain seminal events such as Bloody Sunday and the 1981 Hunger Strikes, which have a diverse representational history on screen, are given particular attention offering insight on how the representation of Ireland’s history continues to shape contemporary politics and impacts filmmaking practices both in Ireland and worldwide.

The $12 fee includes a package of one ticket to all six screenings in the series and access to the course readings, recorded lectures, and discussions. Attendance is not mandatory, but there are no refunds or exchanges for dates not attended.
