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.

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
