Boxes 48 - 53 and 87-88

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of files relating to lectures and poetry readings given by Eamon Grennan, and classes and workshops taught by Grennan. Lecture files include notes and drafts, as well as supplementary material relating to the topic. These files document invited lectures given outside a classroom setting. Poetry reading files include information about the event, as well as the poems Grennan read. Teaching files may include syllabi, notes for lectures, reading assignments and research material. Some courses have been identified, however most files could not be tied to a single course offering and are instead arranged independently by subject.

Arranged in alphabetical order by topic.
