Harvard Celtic Colloquium
The Harvard Celtic Colloquium is a three-day conference organized each October by graduate students in the department. The conference attracts scholars and graduate students from around the world, and all those with a serious interest in Celtic studies are welcome to participate. The call for papers is issued in February or March.
John V. Kelleher Lecture
The John V. Kelleher Lecture commemorates Harvardís first professor of Irish Studies. John Kelleher was a distinguished scholar and legendary teacher in many areas, from the early heroic sagas to James Joyce; from the medieval annals and kinglists to the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1921 and beyond. A native of Lawrence, Massachusetts and a graduate of Dartmouth College, he came to Harvard as a Junior Fellow in 1940, and except for his years of service in Washington during the Second World War, remained at Harvard until his retirement in 1986. He died in January 2004. In inviting our Kelleher Lecturers, we seek out the finest scholars in the world of Celtic studies, speakers whose range and depth is worthy of John Kelleherís legacy. Seamus Heaney delivered the inaugural Kelleher Lecture in 2004, and subsequent lecturers have included Damian McManus, Joseph F. Nagy, Philip OíLeary, Patrick Sims-Williams and Richard Suggett. For information about the next Kelleher Lecture, please see the Harvard Celtic Colloquium page.
