Bantry Bay Co. CorkThis space will be used to post relevant resources prior to and during our Maymester trip to Ireland. Our Maymester class will focus on several topics (Irish music, peace, politics, popular culture, Blasket Island history and culture, meeting Martin Kearney, the Troubles and political murals) but will also allow for and encourage learning in context — significant learning opportunities that arise as we travel and engage in Irish culture in variety of settings and places. Students will have opportunities to participate in mapping projects which identify and locate interesting and important ideas, places, events, people and projects that are relevant to our course learning outcomes and developing an ethos that embraces cultural ambassadorship and learning in context values.
