Association of Celtic
Students of Ireland and Britain ~ Inaugural Conference, Edinburgh 16th March 2013.
Information and Call for Papers.
The conference will be held in the department of Celtic and
Scottish Studies at the University
of Edinburgh on Saturday
16 March 2013. The Association has been set up to promote academic and social
connections between undergraduate and postgraduate students of Celtic Studies
(including those whose courses are specifically Irish, Welsh or Scottish Gaelic
etc.), and is currently led by a provisional steering committee (see below).
The first permanent committee will be elected at the AGM to be held as part of
the inaugural conference. So far the Association and the conference have
aroused considerable interest among students in Scotland, Ireland, Wales and
England, and we hope that the event will be a great success and that it will
move to other universities in future years.
Call for papers.
We invite proposals on any topic in Celtic, including
language and linguistics, literature, history, folklore etc. Papers should be
approximately 15 minutes long; there will also be a poster session. Please send
abstracts of between 50 and 200 words to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This address can also be used to ask us for further information about any
aspect of the conference or the Association. If you have never given a paper
before, this is a good opportunity to do so in a supportive environment where
you will receive helpful feedback and encouragement. Your topic may be a work
in progress or based on class work you have done at your home university.
The deadline for the call for papers is 27th
The inaugural conference will be held on Saturday 16th
March in the Celtic and Scottish Studies building at 27 George Square, Edinburgh.
