International students flock to Ireland for Celtic Studies Summer School
Fifty undergraduate and postgraduate students from all over the world will descend on Dublin this week for a Celtic Studies Summer School, run by the School of Celtic Studies at Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS). The course was officially launched by Mary Mitchell-O’Connor, Minister of State at the Department of Education with special responsibility for Higher Education, today (03.07.17).
The Summer School, which takes place every three years and runs from July 3-14th, will be attended by students from countries all over the world including: United States, England, Scotland, France, Canada, Russia, Italy, Finland, Sweden and Ireland.
“The Summer School is a fantastic opportunity for us to promote Celtic Studies. While they are here, the students will have the opportunity to attend lectures on Early Modern Irish, Middle Welsh and Mediaeval Lordship and Gaelic Literary Tradition, amongst others.
“With over fifty students attending from across the world, it is great to see the continued interest and work being done in this area. We are committed at DIAS to providing a centre of excellence for Celtic scholars and scholarship to conduct exemplary, standard-setting research and the Summer School is a very important aspect of this”
Officially launching the Summer School today, Minister Mitchell-O’Connor welcomed the students to Ireland. “It is fantastic to see this level of interest in Celtic Studies from countries all around the world and I am delighted to welcome them here.
“The demand for places, with fifty participants from Ireland, United Kingdom, Europe and North America, is an indication of the Summer School’s international significance and the leadership role of the School of Celtic Studies in global research.” (The Minister’s speech in full is available here)

Notes to Editor
The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) is a statutory corporation established in 1940 under the Institute for Advanced Studies Act of that year. It is a publicly-funded independent centre for research in basic disciplines. DIAS has three constituent schools: The School of Celtic Studies, The School of Theoretical Physics, The School of Cosmic Physics.
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. Section Coordinators: Celtic Studies - Eibhlín Nic Dhonncha email@example.com CP, Astrophysics - Eileen Flood firstname.lastname@example.org & Anne Grace email@example.com CP, Geophysics - Clare Horan firstname.lastname@example.org Theoretical Physics - George Rogers email@example.com
Please contact your section coordinator with any queries. All DIAS staff are welcome to attend.
Professor M.J. Driscoll of Copenhagen University will present a lecture titled “Iceland’s Medieval Manuscripts” on Friday 28th April 2017, at 15:30 in the Lecture Hall at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, 10 Burlington Road, Dublin 4.
