MA in Critical Irish Studies at UL

Scholarship opportunities are now available for students entering the new MA in Critical Irish Studies at the University of Limerick.


This MA will address current issues in Ireland and the Irish diaspora, with particular attention to social theory, performance/performativity, historical depth and aesthetic nuance. Students will learn not  only to identify and analyze but also to question received narratives of culture, society, arts, history, politics, law and languages. The focus is on currents that affect Ireland, as well as the construction and performance of these very concepts.
