For the duration of the School of Celtic Studies 2017 Summer School, 3–14 July, there will be a discount of 20% off all publications!
Taking place from 31 August – 1 September 2017, further details to follow.
Edited by Liam Breatnach, this book will be available to buy from Friday 28th April.
Córus Bésgnai, a component tract of the Old Irish law text Senchas Már, is an important source text for the Church in early mediaeval Ireland. This book consists of annotated editions and translations of the Old Irish text as well as the later mediaeval glosses and commentaries. It should be of use to those interested not only in early mediaeval Ireland, but also in the early mediaeval Western Church.
An inter-disciplinary research forum has been scheduled for Wednesday 17 May 2017, 3-5pm at Burlington Road. The forum is intended to be an informal event that provides post-doctoral scholars and PhD students with the opportunity to share and discuss their current research with scholars and staff from across the three schools of DIAS.
There will be no main speakers at the event. Instead, participants will be assigned a space where they can share and discuss their research interests. Participants are encouraged to present a poster which visually complements their research, and allows them to explain what they do to all DIAS staff. In instances where a poster presentation is not appropriate, participants should feel free to develop an alternative approach.
The forum presents a great opportunity for scholars to sharpen their academic presentation and public outreach skills in an informal setting, while also getting to know colleagues from across the Institute.
The organisers strongly encourage scholars from all three schools to participate in the forum. A coordinator from each section will liaise with participants regarding their presentations.
Participants are asked to register here prior to Friday 12 May.
