IMMACULATA COURSE FEATURES IRISH NOBEL LAUREATES

On four Thursdays in October, Immaculata University will offer an introduction to the Irish Nobel laureates in literature as part of its Irish Studies Program.

The one-credit course, presented by Sister Marie Hubert Kealy, IHM, PhD, will consist of four lectures and discussions of the contributions of William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett, and Seamus Heaney. Since these will be introductions to each author, there are no pre-requisites for the course, and the participants may elect to receive either workshop or academic credit. Everyone interested in Irish literature will find the material both accessible and enjoyable. The lectures will be supplemented by video and audio presentations.

The class will meet October 2, 9, 16, and 23 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. To register, contact Kathie Gallagher in the College of LifeLong Learning at 610-647-4400, ext. 3243 or kgallagher@immaculata.edu.

The Irish Studies Program at Immaculata offers an opportunity for cultural enrichment and an exploration of Irish language, history and literature. Sister Marie Hubert, the director of the program, can be reached at mkealy@immaculata.edu.

Immaculata University, a Catholic liberal arts institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
