Go mbeannai/ Dia dhaoibh, a chairde,
 
Cuireadh ar mo shu/ile go bhfuil HUMANITIES WEST ag tabhairt na
le/achtai/ agus le/amha seo a leanas, "Imagining Ireland: Poet's Vision
and Patriot's Dream," ar an 24 agus 25 de Mha/rta i Herbst Theater, 401
Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco. Eolas a chur: 415.392.4400.
 
De/ hAoine, 24 Ma/rta:
 
8:00 pm. THE PLAYBOYS OF THE THIRD WORLD: IRELAND AND POST-COLONIAL
CULTURE: Declan Kiberd, Lecturer, University College, Dublin, asks, "Is
Irish writing part of a 'first world' or 'third world' culture?"
 
9:15 pm. Nuala Ni/ Dhomhna/ill, poet, discusses the role of poets in the
Irish literary revival and reads from her own poetry.
 
De/ Sathairn, 25 Ma/rta:
 
10:00 am. LANGUAGE AS THE IRISH ART: Robert Tracy, University of
California, Berkeley. The rich oral story-telling tradition in Irish life
reappears in Irish fiction, poetry and especially drama: art based on the
word in a special way.
 
11:10 am. STAGING IRELAND: CONTESTED IMAGES: Nicholas Grene, Trinity
College, Dublin. Dramatic images of Irish experience offered by Yeats,
Synge and O'Casey often provoked violent reactions from the audiences who
believed they maligned the Irish character.
 
12:00-1:30 pm: Aimsir Lo/in.
 
1:30 pm. Deirdre Herbert gives a dramatic performance as Molly Bloom from
Joyce's "Ulysses."
 
1:50 pm. VIEW FROM THE TOWER: David Norris, Trinty College, Dublin, and
member of the Irish Senate, will examine the search for a national
cultural identity, and explores the interrelationship between literature
and politics at the turn of the century.
 
3:00 pm. MODELS OF AMBIVALENCE AND AMBIGUITY: IRISH FAIRY LEGEND: Angela
Bourke, University College, Dublin. Stereotypes portray Irish
fairy-belief as simple-minded credulity, but a closer acquaintance with
the literature and folklore shows many preoccupations of modern sociology
and psychology addressed in terms of these perspectives.
 
Sla/n beo,
 
Mi/chea/l
