Danny and his partner Marianne have been visiting and studying in Ireland annually since 2015. The course will share stories about people and places they have come to know quite well. Ireland is a land where the past is never very far away, whether struggling to foster peace and reconciliation in the face of centuries of sectarian conflict or attending a pre-Christian Celtic ceremony at a Neolithic passage tomb. Simultaneously the Irish try to put “The Troubles” behind them and look to a future of social and economic justice built on shared values of honoring the land & the past and making life better for future generations. The sessions, although in lecture style, will tell multi-media stories featuring short videos, music and photography.

Danny Dullea is a performance storyteller, actor and civic media filmmaker. He recently retired from Clarkson University. During his career as instructor and Director of Creative Media for the Communication and Media Department, he taught digital video production, mass media and public speaking. Danny’s first extended trip to Ireland was actually a sabbatical to teach a practical distance learning course called Documenting Social Activism where he met and participated in events with environmental activists. Twice weekly he shared the experience live (via “Zoom”) to students back at Clarkson.
