The Celts in the Americas conference will offer a unique opportunity to share scholarship about the history, culture, and literature of Celtic-speaking peoples in North and South America, the first academic conference devoted to this theme, exploring aspects of the experiences and literatures of the communities speaking Breton, Cornish, Irish Gaelic, Manx Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, or Welsh in the Americas. One day will be devoted to examining the interactions between Celtic peoples and non-Celtic peoples, with special emphasis on indigenous peoples and peoples of African descent.
29 June - 2 July 2011, St Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
