Summer 2005 Ireland Literature and Peace Studies Class

Associate Professor of Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies Joe Liechty, an expert on Sectarianism in Ireland, and Associate Professor of English Ann Hostetler, a published poet, led a group of students to Ireland and Northern Ireland for several weeks in late May and early June for a class – which they called “a pilgrimage of peace” – combining the rich literary tradition of the island, as well as the peacemaking lessons the country has to offer. The course included a wealth of guest lecturers – including peacemakers who quoted poets, and poets who wrote about conflict in their search for a form of transcendence.
