Global Irish Studies at Georgetown University (GIS), which is supported by Georgetown College and the Humanities Initiative, builds on a long tradition of Irish and Irish-American involvement at Georgetown University. GIS has three core aims: engaging the community; inspiring students; and developing research. By staging timely and meaningful public events, supporting innovative teaching, and facilitating student and faculty research, GIS hopes to build the most exciting Irish Studies program in North America.
Given both its Irish heritage and its global outlook, Georgetown University is the perfect home for a new kind of Irish Studies–one that looks at Ireland in comparative perspective, understanding it as a place from which to ask probing questions about the world we live in today.
