The "go-to" entity for Irish education, scholarship, business, science, and culture in the University System of Georgia, the Center for Irish Studies helps the University community and the public explore and enjoy Ireland and Irish America. The Center is at the heart of a region that boasts exceptionally rich and diverse Irish patrimonies, both native Irish and Scots-Irish (Ulster-Scots). Our work acknowledges the great sweep of Irish experience: ancient Gaelic civilization; colonization from Strongbow to beyond Cromwell; and the worldwide Irish diaspora. Also of concern is contemporary Ireland: a high-tech powerhouse; earth's "most global" economy. The Center is a pace-setter in bringing top-quality artists, performers, lecturers, and semester-stay scholar-teachers to South Georgia. Our student-centered ethos is reflected in our Interdisciplinary Minor, our Study-in-Ireland opportunities, and our sponsorship of two student clubs. Beir bua!
