  8. The alternative greatest films ever: The Sight & Sound and student poll
    Evening
    Course start date:  Mon 22 Apr 2024 (and 1 other date)

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  John Wischmeyer
    This is a stand-alone companion course to the Autumn ’23 course on the Sight and Sound Poll of the Greatest Films of All Time. The first reactions to the Sight and Sound Poll 2022 were divisive, as completely expected, when certain 21st-century films made the list and other venerated classics were dropped (see topics below for the list). As interesting as the top 100 was to discuss, we wanted to look a bit deeper to see how the reception of certain films shifted over the last decade, with a rundown of the films that were added and those removed. Be assured, they are as enjoyable as the Top 100—perhaps even more so. In addition to viewing the films that were added or dropped, students will conduct their own poll of the Greatest Films of All Time. Enjoy either or both of these complementary courses.

  15. 'The city was then drama mad!' Irish drama in the 20th century
    Course start date:  Fri 3 May 2024

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  Niall Culligan
    Reflecting on the 1916 Easter Rising, W.B. Yeats speculated: “Did that play of mine send out certain men the English shot?” The Irish political revolution is unique in being preceded by a literary revolution, most especially on the Irish stage, which hugely influenced the generation of politicians and thinkers that went on to shape modern Ireland. In this course we will trace developments in Irish drama throughout the 20th century, from the Irish Literary Revival to experiments from groups such as the Field Day Theatre Company, reading plays by writers including Yeats, Lady Gregory, J.M. Synge, Seán O’Casey, Samuel Beckett, Brian Friel, and Marina Carr.
