Months of entry
The literatures of Ireland and Scotland have been closely intertwined since the time when they shared the same pre-Christian Celtic mythologies, mythologies which have been recreated in Celtic Revival movements from the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries. This course provides students with the opportunity to study Irish and Scottish literature from the most ancient to the most modern, with the opportunity to focus on individual Irish and Scottish writers. The course can be combined with modules from the M.Litt in Creative Writing and the M.Litt in Celtic and Anglo Saxon Studies. This programme is associated with the Research Institute of Irish and Scottish Studies (RIISS).
