OVERVIEW


Research Strategies

Irish and Celtic Studies is part of the Modern Languages research cluster, which 
provides a vibrant environment for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship. 
Recognised as a centre of excellence for research into the languages, literatures, 
histories, linguistics, visual cultures, and cultural identities of Europe and beyond, the 
cluster is founded on a dynamic and forward-looking research ethos. Within this cluster, 
Irish and Celtic Studies aims to promote and disseminate cutting-edge research across 
all periods of the Irish language and also focuses on aspects of language and literature 
in Scotland. Research in the unit is conducted on both an individual and collaborative 
basis.

Research Strengths

  • Lexicography
  • Medieval Irish language and literature
  • Modern Irish literary studies
  • Onomastics
We also have a strong record in supervising comparative and interdisciplinary theses 
across the humanities and involving other Schools in the University.
