Violence and Reconciliation in Northern Ireland

                           Northern Ireland Group

Northern Ireland: Violence, Non-Violence & Reconciliation (Spring 2011)

This course, taught by Dr. Ann Green, examines violence and reconciliation in Northern Ireland through the mediums of literature and writing, while paying special attention to both the socio-historical roots of “The Troubles” and the moral context of discourses of retribution and forgiveness. The literature analyzed in this course will give voice to those who have experienced the troubles in non-fictional and fictional accounts.
