Learning Abroad

This summer, English Department PhD student Gabriel Gryffyn traveled to Ireland to attend the Summer School in Mediaeval and Modern Irish Language and Literature at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. The intensive two week program included courses in Modern and Old Irish in the morning with lectures on Medieval and Early Modern Irish Literature and its Transmission and Early Irish Law and Society, and the Learned Orders in the afternoon.

Gabriel was able to begin her foray into learning the twisty but beautiful mess that is Old Irish as well as use the excellent resources in the libraries both at DIAS and Trinity College, Dublin. She also had the opportunity to visit the medieval buildings at Glendalough in County Wicklow.
