A symposium on Charms and Magic in Medieval and Modern Ireland will be held by the Department of Early Irish at the National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM) next month.
It will bring together scholars from diverse backgrounds such as religious studies and folklore, archaeology and philology, to discuss magic, charms and their mindset in the past and in the present. The contributions will span more than a thousand years and will shed light on some of the more obscure corners of Medieval and Modern Ireland.
Dates: Friday 6 June 5:30pm–7:30pm and Saturday 7 June, 9:30am–5:30pm.
Venue: Physics Hall (reception Friday evening: Russell Library), South Campus, NUIM, Co Kildare.
Registration fee: €20 (€10 for students): Includes tea/coffee and lunch on the Saturday.
