    Abstract

    This volume is a celebration of Celtic Languages and Literatures at the University of Uppsala, an academic tradition which has continued from 1950 to the present day. In order to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the establishment of this tradition, So-cietas Celtologica Nordica held its eleventh symposium in Uppsala on 14-16 May 2010. The present volume comprises the proceedings of that conference and nine former lecturers in Celtic Studies at Uppsala have contributed. The articles deal with aspects of Irish literature, language, history and folklore. Literary papers deal with early Irish voyage literature, Irish place-name lore, textual transmission, satirical verse of the eighteenth century and the emergence of a modern Irish-language print culture. Language papers deal with matters such as words for the fox in Indo-European and Celtic, the language of the first translation of the New Testament into Irish, linguistic features of the late Ulster Cycle and diversity in language learning. Irish history is catered for in papers that look at the origins and birthplace of St Pat-rick and Gaelic Dublin in the early eighteenth century, while another paper deals with field-work carried out in Ireland and Scotland by the Norwegian folklorist Ole Mørk Sandvik.
