Lecture by Professor Liz Fitzpatrick, School of Geography and Archaeology, NUI Galway: "Gathering Places and Collective Identities in Medieval and Early Modern Gaelic Ireland"
April 15, 5 p.m.
The Graduate Center/City University of New York
365 Fifth Avenue (at 34th St.), room 9110
The cultural practice of assembly among Gaelic
peoples involved the repetitive act of returning
to particular cult landscapes on occasions of
political and popular meetings and seasonal
rituals. The pedigree of the landscapes selected
for gathering and the continuity observed in
their use through time, reflect remarkable
adherence to collective identities.
