The 10th International Congress of Celtic Studies

10-ICCS, the major academic conference for Celtic Studies, will take place in
Edinburgh 23-29 July 1995. The theme, Celtic Connections, will be interpreted
synchronically and diachronically. Connections examined will include those
between Celtic cultures as well as relationships with the non-Celtic world.

Papers will be presented on history, tradition, ethnology; philology,
linguistics; literary history, criticism and theory; archaeology; art. Taking
part in plenary sessions on key topics of Celticity and the future of the
Celtic languages will be Professor D Ellis Evans, Professor Vincent and Dr Ruth
Megaw, Dr Robert Owen Jones, Professor Seamas Mac Mathuna. Thanks to a massive
response to our call for papers, 10-ICCS, while fielding established scholars
from every country where Celtic Studies is practised, will also offer great
breadth of choice and emphasis on youth. Accommodation will be provided on
campus. A full programme of social events and excursions is planned.
