The School of Celtic Studies will be hosting a colloquium on genre in medieval Celtic literature on 27–28 September 2013, at the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies, 10 Burlington road, Dublin 4.
The aim of this colloquium is to open up the field to discussion of the concept of genre in medieval literature and in particular in the Celtic vernaculars. While recent years have seen a gradual increase in publications on this topic, the potential of the discussion of genre and generic analysis for the Celtic literatures has not yet been fully explored. This colloquium aims to bring together current research on the subject, with a view to exploring the role genre plays in modern scholarship as well as in the medieval understanding of reading and writing.
Proposals for papers of approximately 30 mins are invited on all topics relevant to genre in medieval Celtic literature (not limited to the vernaculars) including:
taxonomy and typology (medieval and modern)
methodology of generic analysis
medieval reading practices
artes liberales and medieval writing
Proposals should include your name, affiliation (if applicable), proposed title and an abstract of no more than 300 words. The deadline for submission is Friday 29th March 2013.
All enquiries and proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
