Advanced Topics in Celtic Studies I: Manuscript Studies


This course is an in-depth study of one of the most important Irish documents of the early modern period. The text in question is an early English translation of Geoffrey Keating’s ‘Foras Feasa ar Éirinn’ [A Compendium of Knowledge on Ireland], an anti-colonial masterpiece and self-ethnography of Irish-speaking Ireland completed in the 1630s. As well as learning about the content and impact of the text itself, students will get practical experience in transcribing and editing the manuscript.
