Course Description:
This module aims to work with ideas which are universal in their application, and which suggest that the cultural landscape is the richest, most varied and most exciting record we possess. As a land grown old with humanity, the Irish landscape may be viewed as a text to be read, a much written over manuscript, which history has fashioned out of geography. It is representative of many authors and a mirror of many histories. Being the concrete expression of states of mind now and in the past, it is imbued withy cultural meaning. The key objectives are to teach the students to be able to read the landscape, and to provide guidelines on how to write about it.
