|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject is a study of the main social, economic and political developments in Ireland since the late 18th century. A particular focus will be the relationship between Ireland and Britain, including the divisions within Ireland between nationalists and unionists; the 19th century nationalist battles for social justice and Home Rule; the partition of Ireland in the 1920s and the ongoing struggle over the future of Northern Ireland. Students will also encounter a broader range of aspects of Irish society: religion as a cultural, social and political factor; poverty and the tragedy of the Irish famine; mass emigration and the Irish diaspora; and the richness of Irish culture. Students should complete the subject with a general knowledge of the major developments in Irish history since 1790 and an awareness of the principal elements in debates over Irish nationalism and unionism.
|Assessment:||A document essay of 1500 words 40% (due mid-semester), a research essay of 2500 words 50% (due at the end of the semester) and tutorial participation 10%.|
