Centre for Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Studies and Research Institute of Irish and Sottish Studies
Celtic at Aberdeen is well connected across Scotland with national centres of excellence in Celtic studies, and we regularly collaborate with other Celtic departments in Scotland to bring staff and students together, most recently at the Ulidia-Finn conference at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig in summer 2018. Our own Centre for Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Studies brings together scholars and postgraduates whose interests lie in literature, languages, history and culture of the British and Irish isles.
The Research Institute of Irish and Scottish Studies promotes high-quality research focused around history, literary and cultural studies, and the languages of Ireland and Scotland.
Our Centre for Scandinavian Studies fosters interdisciplinary research in the languages, literatures and cultures of the early and mediaeval North, including links between Celtic and Germanic cultures.
