Irish Women Writers on the syllabus

How do we teach Irish women writers to undergraduate and postgraduate students? Which writers and texts are taught in what contexts? The IWWN wishes to bring together syllabi and reflections from scholars on current teaching trends. 

The aim is to gather resources for teaching Irish women’s writing of the long nineteenth century at higher education institutions around the globe. In seeking to develop a teaching section on the IWWN’s webpage, we wish to contribute to ongoing discussions about dislocating the canon; support the widening of comparative, transnational and interdisciplinary approaches; and reflect on the advantages and disadvantages of digital and other new pedagogies. 

  • In which contexts do you situate Irish women writers? 
  • What are the methodological approaches you take in teaching Irish women writers? 
  • To which texts have your students responded particularly well?

If you are teaching Irish women writers of the period, we would like to hear from you. To contribute to the IWWN’s new teaching section you can do so by: 

  • contributing an 800-word teaching reflection blog post;
  • sharing your syllabus via the IWWN webpage in a new ‘syllabus repository’. 

Please email Anna if you would like to be involved.
