Writing Ireland, Writing England – Dr David O’Shaughnessy


Ireland and England had - perhaps endured - a particularly intense relationship period at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. The 'Irish question' was to the fore in British politics even at a time when it was engulfed by the Napoleonic Wars. Ireland was a country uniquely in a position to support or distract England at a difficult time in its history and it loomed large in the English cultural imagination.


Complicating the issue of Ireland for the English was the sense that, one the one hand, the Irish were imagined as vulgar, at best, or barbaric, at worst, in order to justify the moral certitude of occupation. Conversely, particularly around the time of the French Revolution, the Irish were simultaneously imagined as stalwart supporters of Britain so as to discourage Irish dissent and the possibility of French invasion via Ireland. In the event the Irish rebelled, there was an Act of Union, and a long difficult march towards Catholic Emancipation in 1829.


The history of Anglo-Irish relations from this period is fascinating. In this module we will explore how literary and visual culture responded to historical events and political currents across the period. We will concentrate on four major events: the French Revolution in 1789, the Irish Rebellion of 1798, the Act of Union 1801, and Catholic Emancipation 1829. We will look at the work of Irish Catholic, Anglo-Irish 'Ascendancy', and English writers across the period and consider the extent to which these works from different traditions cohere. How did these different traditions respond to each other? How did novelists, journalists, dramatists, and artists respond to the period's tumultuous events? Was it possible to be both proudly Irish and loyal to the Crown? And how did Ireland figure in the imagination of English writers, particularly those we now consider Romantic? To use Homi Bhabha's phrase, this module will measure the extent to which the Irish were 'almost the same, but not quite' and the degree which this slippage provoked cultural production across the period.

TIMETABLE

While the Foundation Module is compulsory students may choose particular pathways and their own combination of options. Unfortunately, it may not be possible for students to take their first choice options in every case, and we may need to make changes in the programme in the event of unforeseen circumstances. If students from outside the department wish to take one of the English modules they should inform Cheryl Cave as well as your own Graduate Secretary by the Wednesday of week 1.


MODULES

You will be asked to give 1st and 2nd choices for your option modules, as upper and lower limits may be placed on numbers.
