HON 447 - The “Real” Westeros: Game of Thrones and Northern Ireland

Prerequisite, admission to the University Honors Program. This travel course situates George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones in contemporary dialogues about, multiple perspectives of, and various theoretical approaches to the literary, the visual, the political, and the historical. We will examine Northern Ireland’s tumultuous history and how this history is used, distorted, and/or problematized by tourism involving Game of Thrones (both literary texts and the television adaptation). Some sections of HON 447 will be taught with ENG 447 . Fee: TBD. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
