Banks, Bailouts and Irish Literature, Spring 2013
This interdisciplinary course explores the relationship between Irish literature and economics from the 18th century to the boom times of the Celtic Tiger and the fallout from the recent banking crisis. The course will situate contemporary Irish literature and culture in relation to earlier periods, but also in the context of the Irish government’s bailout of the banks and the subsequent European Union-IMF “bailout” of the sovereign state of Ireland.

2.2.1 X-ray source

X-rays are produced when energetic electrons strike a metal target. The X-ray source consists of an evacuated tube containing a cathode, from which the electrons are emitted, and an anode, which supports the target material where the X-rays are produced. Only about 1 per cent of the energy used is emitted as X-rays – the remainder is dissipated as heat in the anode. In most systems the anode is rotated so that the electrons strike only a small portion at any one time and the rest of the ano

Introduction

We begin this course by looking at an estuary, a place where sea, land and sky meet. We have chosen a particular estuary: the Blackwater estuary on the Essex coast in eastern England. Although the Blackwater has its own unique characteristics, it is used here as a setting, a device for approaching the study of environments. Like any other estuary, the Blackwater brings together a diverse range of processes, elements and issues that constitute the environment. It offers us a way into thinking
