Call for Papers -- CSANA at Kalamazoo 2014

Here is the call for papers for two CSANA panels that will be held at Kalamazoo 2014:

"CSANA invites paper proposals for two sponsored sessions at the 49th International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo, Michigan, May 8 -11, 2014.

1. The first session will feature "New Work by Young Celtic Studies Scholars."  This session will feature work by graduate students and other scholars who are early in their careers to provide them with feedback and suggestions.  Papers on any topic relevant to Celtic Studies, including comparative topics, are welcome.

2. The second session will consider "Interdisciplinary Approaches to Celtic Studies and 'Celtic.'"  Celtic Studies is inherently an interdisciplinary field and deploying the methodologies and perspectives of the various relevant academic disciplines yields more nuanced and holistic understanding of questions relating to the Celtic peoples and their cultures.  This session will welcome papers which either directly address concepts and definitions of "Celtic" or employ differing disciplinary methods when exploring a particular topic within Celtic Studies.

Paper proposals should include both an abstract and the Congress Participant Information Form, which is available online at:
