Course Description

What is it to be 'Celtic'? Celtic Civilisation 1A is a 'survey' course concerned with the history of Celticness as a racial, cultural and ethnic concept, from the Iron Age in ancient times until the present. Its principal objective is to guide students to an understanding of how certain languages, music, art and nations came to be called 'Celtic'. Students on the course visit with the ancient Celtae, the medieval Celtic-speakers, and the early modern Europeans who saw themselves as their 'Celtic' descendants. You will observe how ideas about 'being Celtic' have changed since then, and discuss the sometimes bitter controversies surrounding Celticness today. Visiting and 'outside-subject' students are most welcome on the course.
