Media Archaeology, 2016
Media Archaeology in the Boyne Valley
Ireland: May 22-June 2, 2016
This is an interdisciplinary program that combines English, art and new media as a means of exploring the history of the Boyne Valley in Ireland. While here at Molloy, students will participate in a project based class where they will acquire the skills to produce an interactive map. The text and illustration will come from their study and understanding of the subject. Upon arrival in Ireland, lectures, field trips and research will allow students to reveal the history - why has the cultural background changed over the years? Return to the neolithic past to investigate the physical remnants and how the culture evolved from that time to today. Additionally you will earn 3 credits in history while you complete this program in Ireland.
All students must be enrolled in HUM 290 - Media Archaeology to participate in this program. Costs include round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, breakfast daily and sightseeing.
