SMC One: The Boyle Seminar in Scripts and Stories

New in 2018-19, the Boyle Seminar brings first-year students to the intersection of Celtic and mediaeval cultures. The Seminar, inspired by the work of Fr. Leonard Boyle, an internationally-renowned scholar of manuscripts and long-time figure on St. Michael’s College campus, invites students to investigate layers of history, analyze mediaeval books, and take language instruction in Latin or Irish.

Through lectures, seminars, language instruction, workshops, and guest speakers, students will study texts and their stories in their own times and over the centuries.

The course is taught by University of St. Michael’s College Assistant Professors Máirtín Coilféir and Alison More. In Summer 2019, students in the Boyle Seminar will be invited to travel to Ireland with Prof. Coilféir and Prof. More for an out-of-course international learning experience.
Scholarships will be awarded to successful applicants.
