Summer Course in Irish Studies at Immaculata
The Dublin in which the leaders of the Irish Literary Revival lived and wrote will be the subject of a one-credit course in summer session I at Immaculata University. The course "Women of the Irish Literary Revival: Visions of Deirdre" will run on five Tuesdays, May 23, 30 and June 6, 13, 20 from 6:30- 9:00 p.m., in room 23, Good Counsel Hall on the Immaculata main campus.
By use of the legendary figure of Deirdre, Dr. John Lavin will focus on the achievements and challenges of women of the period in which Lady Gregory, W.B. Yeats, Eva Gore-Booth and J. M. Synge were the chief literary influence.
Dr. Lavin is a lecturer in English and Communications at St. Joseph University and a long time director of the Comey Institute of Industrial Relations. His focus in literature combines his interests in Irish Studies and storytelling with his research on conflict resolution.
