The University of Limerick (UL) is delighted to announce the launch of their new Masters of Arts in Global Irish Studies at the Irish Consulate General, Boston on Wednesday 27th March at 5:30 pm as part of UL`s Irish Cultural Week in Boston City.
The MA in Global Irish Studies will bring together a wide range of historical, literary and musical disciplines to examine the interconnected notions of local and global Irishness. By examining the global positioning of Irish identity and culture UL aims to bring fresh perspectives to the understanding of Irish identities and culture.
UL is thrilled to announce UL`s leading academics in Global Irish Studies Dr Mairead Moriarty and Dr Michael Griffin present a very special panel based discussion on Irish American relations in Boston.
The panel will demonstrates the necessary link between international focus and excellent contribution to regional and national life, standing as it does for Irish culture in global contexts. It will be 'global' in the sense that, as Claire Connolly notes, “A great many things have happened and are happening on the island [of Ireland] that are not primarily concerned with nationality and its discontents: great swathes of contemporary popular culture, multinational capitalism, migrants and refugee seekers all participate in and are moved by global forces that traverse the island of Ireland, blind to the intricate complexities of its past.”
This is a wonderful opportunity for the Irish American community to learn more about Irish Global Studies from our world renowned University of Limerick professors. This special launch evening is an exciting and interactive way for the people of Boston to find out about studying abroad in Ireland with the University of Limerick.
