“Our Lady of Peace:” The Abbaye Ecole in Sorèze

In the summer of 2009 I travelled to Sorèze, an enchanted village in the south of France.  The purpose of the trip was to screen my documentary Journey into America at the Culture and Cultures Intercultural International film festival at the Château de Padiès, a mansion built on the site of a former castle, located in the outskirts…… Continue reading “Our Lady of Peace:” The Abbaye Ecole in Sorèze

Back in Dublin for term two

I’m back to instructing tutorials for the course “Introduction to Sociology” at the freshers level. I’ve instructed these tutorials in 2010 and 2011, so it’s fairly familiar material. The blog I had created for the students seemed to be a big hit, so I think I’ll continue with it. Maybe I’ll use Twitter a bit…… Continue reading Back in Dublin for term two

At times the clip moves…… Continue reading Video: Road-trip to Maghera Beach and Port in Northwest Ireland (Over ‘Orange Sky’ by Alexi Murdoch)

Picture: Paris from a plane

Taken on a plan ride in transit to Toulouse.  From Toulouse I would have taken a train to the small village of Soreze, but I was never able to find the train.  Instead I had about a €250 cab ride to my destination. It was the most enjoyable €250 cab ride of all time.  The…… Continue reading Picture: Paris from a plane
