The Irish Studies Program at DePaul University is an interdisciplinary field that offers an undergraduate minor, which examines the history, literature, politics, geography, religion, and culture of Ireland, as well as the Irish Diaspora and the contemporary integration of Ireland within globalized systems of political economy, international relations, travel and communication.
Join us for an evening with Irish poet Desmond Egan. Egan is the author of 23 collections of poetry, two works or prose and two translations of Greek plays.
A founder of the Gerard Manley Hopkins Festival in 1987, Egan remains Artistic Director of the festival today.
In October 2015, Egan received the Outstanding Contributions in Literature Award from the Irish Books, Arts, and Music Festival in Chicago. Egan and his work have received awards from organizations in France, Italy, Japan, Macedonia, and the United States.
