In this bi-weekly seminar, we read Irish-language poetry and prose literature composed in the Early Modern period (i.e. c. 1500-1700). 

A grammatical overview will be provided, as well as glossaries for the texts, but it is recommended that participants have some knowledge of Modern Irish, Scottish Gaelic, or Old Irish. 

Location: Nobelparken, Aarhus University, 1481-568
