News from the Irish Studies Department
The Irish Studies Program at Hofstra University expresses our deepest sense of loss at the passing of Seamus Heaney. His kindness and joyful words will continue to inspire and uplift us. For some of the poet’s famous quotes, click here.
In his memory, in the Spring of 2014 we will offer “Inventing Identities: Yeats, Heaney, and the Emergence of Modern Irish Poetry” (IRE113/ENGL113; TR 2:20-3:45; CRN: 24610). Taught by Professor Diana Ben-Merre, the course satisfies the Literature (LT) distribution requirement.
