Gerry Adams, Visionary or Villain?


Modern Irish History

We take a three-week journey examining the Irish nationalist political leader, Gerry Adams, his work and his legacy. As President of Sinn Féin from 1983-2018, he was a central player in Northern Ireland’s republican politics. Is he a Mandela or an Arafat?  We will help each other through the class’s journey. Discover how Adams walks the path of many past Irish heroes, love him or otherwise.

3 Sessions: Wednesdays 8:00 – 9:30 p.m. March 10 – 31 [No class March 17]; 3/10; 3/24; & 3/31.
