Proceedings of the Harvard Celtic Colloquium

World

The Proceedings of the Harvard Celtic Colloquium has in its purview all aspects of culture, language, and history of the Celtic peoples, from ancient to modern times.

PHCC, 32 is largely focused on the culture and literature of medieval Ireland, with some attention to the additional topics of Scots Gaelic poetry, medieval Welsh genealogy, and twentieth century pan-Celtic nationalism. The articles on Irish literature consider a wide variety of genre: place name lore, annals, hagiography, native tales, and the national epic Táin Bó Cuailnge. Contributors to this volume discuss both prose and poetry, and they consider cultural influences, history, archaic sources, and affinities with European and Indo-European models, tropes, and styles.
