Ireland presents a rewarding area of intellectual inquiry. Its society and culture provide students with an understanding of experiences such as colonialism, rebellion, war, famine, emigration, and international diplomacy from medieval times to the present. It offers opportunities to read literature in both Irish and English, and to understand the far-reaching effects of diaspora, nationalism, and postcolonialism in the modern world.
The Irish studies minor at NYU is a transnational and interdisciplinary program with the opportunity to study and pursue directed research on Ireland and the Irish abroad—in continental Europe, North America, the Caribbean, and Australasia—as well as on the Irish relationship with other migrant people around the globe. A faculty of distinguished scholars teach courses that intersect literary, political, historical, linguistic, and cultural arenas at Washington Square, as well as during a six-week summer semester in Ireland at Trinity College Dublin.
Located in a landmark townhouse on Fifth Avenue, Glucksman Ireland House opened in 1993 as NYU’s Center for Irish and Irish American Studies. It publishes the American Journal of Irish Studies annually, and offers an exciting program of events open to students, faculty, and the public. In addition to the minor, there is a B.A./M.A. option open to juniors, and a master’s program for post-graduates.
