Strand Definitions: Celtic Studies

Research on the medieval Celtic world has been increasingly directed at communicating the insights of the primary sources, and at identifying the multiple interconnections between vernacular and Christian-Latin traditions, and between insular and continental evidence, both textual and material.

The strand provides a forum for further dialogue over a broad academic spectrum, encompassing literature, language, history, theology and religious studies, archaeology, art history, and manuscript studies. The strand encourages a combination of single-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary proposals on the influence, reception, and interactions of the Celtic regions with the wider medieval world.
