Genre in Celtic Literature -- Call for Papers

"Call for papers: Genre in Medieval Celtic Literature

The School of Celtic Studies is pleased to announce that it will be
hosting a colloquium on genre in medieval Celtic literature on 27รข€“28
September 2013, at 10 Burlington Road, Dublin 4, Ireland.

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
individual genres

Proposals should include your name, affiliation (if applicable),
proposed title and an abstract of no more than 300 words. All
enquiries and proposals should be sent to
The deadline for submission is Friday 29th March 2013."
