IND 205-A Memory and Violence in Modern Ireland (Moral Inquiry)
Elizabeth Chase and her summer course “IND 205: Memory and Violence in Ireland” were recently awarded Exemplary status by Blackboard Inc., an educational technology company with corporate headquarters in Washington, D.C. Only a select group of people across the globe whose participation has been recognized as a significant and exemplary contribution to the Blackboard Community receive the honor, which is the result of review by higher education peers.
Focuses on the ethics of remembering Ireland's often violent history. Students engage with theories of memory and commemoration to probe what is at stake in Ireland in the creation of commemorative sites, programs, and literature. Covering the First World War to the Troubles, the course examines moral and ethical questions about memory and its relationship to sectarian violence in Ireland.
