Course Description

This interdisciplinary course explores the relationship between Irish literature and economics from the 18th century to the boom times of the Celtic Tiger and the fallout from the recent banking crisis.  The course will situate contemporary Irish literature and culture in relation to earlier periods, but also in the context of the Irish government’s bailout of the banks and the subsequent European Union-IMF “bailout” of the sovereign state of Ireland.

This course was also cross-listed as ENGL 20529.
