What makes Dublin special? All the neighborhoods and hidden gems, of course! In this week's post, Clare talks about her class assignment: exploring Ranelagh like a flaneur. She captures the spirit of the area through a photo tour just for us. Take a visual stroll with Clare and check the neighborhood of Ranelagh out.
For our Analyzing and Exploring the Global City class in Dublin, our main assignment was to do research on a neighborhood in Dublin. My group’s assignment was to explore the neighborhood of Ranelagh.
The class is all about learning about the city and observing its characteristics. We learned to be a flaneur and stroll through the streets and notice how unique different parts of the city can be!
Walking through Ranelagh, a fairly affluent area, we noticed the Victorian architecture as well as the fancy boutiques and cafes.
We toured the neighborhood with our instructor and really learned about the development of area.
When it was time for us to present, we analyzed the religious and ethnic makeup of the area and how that evolved through history.
I have loved learning more about the city, including how to look at the city in a different way.
