Celts in the Americas.


Celts in the Americas.

Ed. by Michael Newton.

Cape Breton University Press


376 pages



From a June-July 2011 conference at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada, 19 papers look at New World Celts from perspectives of overviews of the Celtic peoples, language, cultural expression, identity and race, and inter-ethnic interactions. Scholars and activists, as many in or from Europe as in or from the Americas, consider such topics as the Cornish in the Americas as chameleons, the role of the Welsh Language Project in revitalizing Welsh in the Argentine province of Chubut, The Cueudach Tale in Scotland and Cape Breton, the introduction of racialism to Gaelic literature and culture, and the linguistic policy of the Catholic Church towards missionaries sent to eastern Canada from the 17th to the 19th centuries.
