2007 (English)Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
This volume contains papers read at the eighth symposium of Societas Celtologica Nordica held in Oslo on 6–7 May 2006. The papers deal with literary and linguistic aspects of Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Manx, Welsh and Old Norse. Language papers examine matters such as preterite formations in Old Irish, the evolution of periphrastic perfect constructions in Irish, Irish place names, Old Norse loanwords in Scottish Gaelic and phonetic aspects of Scottish Gaelic dialects. Articles devoted to literature investigate references to Ireland in an Old Norse text, the representation of figures in Irish tradition such as Congal Cáech and Judas, the symbolism of blood in Irish tradition, aspects of the birth-tales of Cú Chulainn and include a re-examination of the work of the important Irish literary scholar James Carney. Papers dealing with the modern era include an overview of literature in Manx, a study of post-colonialism in Welsh and investigations of the portrayal of various groups and the use of personal names in a celebrated Irish novel. A further article looks at the visit of the well-known folklorist James Hamilton Delargy to Scandinavia in the 1920s.
