Irish Studies Program at Immaculata University to Offer Online Course

New to the Irish Studies Program at Immaculata University is an online course in contemporary literature. Designed for the person who wishes to combine a busy life with an interest in all things Irish, the course offers a glimpse of current fiction in a non-traditional method.
The three credit course entitled Contemporary Irish Literature involves a look at the novels and short fiction of contemporary Irish writers who tend to deviate from traditional narrative form. The readings will include Anne Enright´s The Gathering, Roddy Doyle´s The Woman Who Walked into Doors, Patrick McCabe´s The Butcher Boy and other selections. These writers, with their proclivity towards wit and witticism, are able to balance the dark aspects of the texts with spellbinding storytelling,
The course is scheduled for Summer Session II (July 6 – August 13); students will logon to the web course on July 6. For information about the course or the online process, contact the instructor, Sean Flannery, at 610-647-4400, ext. 3886 or sflannery@immaculata.edu. New students may register by contacting the College of LifeLong Learning at 610-647-4400 ext. 3238; returning students may use the online or email options given in the catalog.
Immaculata University, a Catholic coeducational institution is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
