SMC165H1: SMC One: The Boyle Seminar in Scripts and Stories



This seminar introduces students to university-level studies through an interdisciplinary exploration of Celtic influences in the mediaeval world, with a particular focus on early books and historical artifacts as physical objects and bearers of meaning. Students will learn how to read and analyse these books and artifacts to decode their meanings, and, in support of that, take introductory language instruction in Latin and Irish. Subjects discussed will include intercultural encounter and dialogue, research methods with historical sources, and the relationship between the written word and lived experience, then and now. There is a co-curricular, optional travel opportunity to Dublin, Ireland associated with this course that takes place following the Winter term exam period. If you choose to go on the trip to Ireland, an ancillary fee of $1,500 is required to help cover a portion of the travel costs. Not eligible for CR/NCR option.

This course is restricted to newly admitted Faculty of Arts and Science students accepted to SMC One. Applications are due before the end of April (deadline subject to change). Apply via the JOIN U of T website.
