Description

This session intervenes in the posthuman, ecocritical turn in recent humanities studies by hosting scholars working on new approaches to the nonhuman, natural world. Each paper presents a different approach to the innovative field of landscape studies as it intersects with traditional Celtic literary studies. Speakers will present diverse approaches to representations of landscape in medieval Celtic literatures, including ecofeminist readings of medieval Irish literature, contemporary practices of deep mapping as they appear in medieval Irish literature, and the function of landscape in an annotated and illustrated Cambro-Latin manuscript.
