The Communication Department and the English Department at Northern
Illinois University are again this year conducting a four week summer
program on "Media and Culture in Ireland" at Dublin City University from
June 22 to July 18. In its sixth year, the program focuses on Ireland's
struggle to define its own cultural identity (pre-modern, post modern,
post-colonial) in a world of American and British media domination.
Students learn about Irish social and economic history and literary
traditions as a backdrop to understanding Ireland's development of a
modern, indigenous media industry--with intensive screenings of
historical and contemporary Irish films both at the university and at the
Irish Film Centre. Irish media artists like Jim Sheridan, media critics
like Michael Dwyer, and academic scholars like Luke Gibbons present guest
lectures in addition to lectures by NIU faculty Jeff Chown and Robert
Self.  Students may earn six hours of graduate or undergraduate credit
either in Communication or in English.
