Celtic Geographies
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Recent years have seen an upsurge of interest in all things Celtic, providing a renewed impetus and vigour to Celtic culture and politics. At the same time, there has been an increased questioning of the exact nature of the Celtic concept. Celtic Geographies illuminates the dynamic nature of Celticity and Celtic geography, by exploring the many ways in which an old culture is being re-interpreted, to serve the needs of particular groups of people, in certain places, in modern times. Celtic Geographies explores a number of themes that are central to historical and contemporary Celticity: * the historical geographies of Celtic Peoples * Devolution and politics in Celtic regions, such as Wales and Scotland * the commodification of Celticity in the tourism practices of Brittany and Ireland * the role of diaspora in the development of Celtic identities, in both North America and in the West of Scotland * the relationship between Celticity and forms of contemporary culture, such as music festivals and the appropriation of Celtic motifs. Celtic Geographies critically questions traditional conceptualizations of Celticity that rely on an homogenous interpretation of what it means to be a Celt in contemporary society. The various contributors break away from these traditional interpretations to critically explore a Celticity that is diverse in character.
