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.

Jacket: The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, by Anthony Abraham Jack, from Harvard University Press

Book Club Spotlight: The Privileged Poor

As students around the world deliberate their options for further education, only made more challenging in a pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. In The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, Anthony Abraham Jack asks how—and why—do disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges? What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
