Description

“England and the Celtic World in Insular Chronicles” seeks papers that take a comparative approach to the insular chronicles – Latin and vernacular; pre- and post-Conquest – in order to explore moments of cross-cultural transmission and perception. This session aims to bring Anglo-Saxonists and Celticists from all fields together in cross-disciplinary conversation, placing the insular chronicles in trans-national perspective. Papers might compare a single historical event or figure across multiple traditions; survey the representation of one culture in the chronicles of another; explore the nuances of historical and literary variation between translations; examine contemporary awareness of genre and form; focus on the material contexts of texts across traditions; or contextualize the cross-cultural nature of textual production. Ultimately, this session aims to place insular chronicles across multiple traditions in dialogue with one another, shedding broader light on the vibrancy of the intellectual milieu from which they emerged.
