Faculty-Led Program: PLSC 300 in Northern Ireland (2020)

Northern Ireland has long grappled with conflict. It divides the country, as well as neighbors and communities. The legacies of conflict are present in walls, the language, governance, and everyday life. Students will have a first hand look into Irish history and culture and generate an understanding of the ongoing peace and reconciliation process.
