April 15, 5 p.m.
The Graduate Center/City University of New York
365 Fifth Avenue (at 34th St.), room 9110
The cultural practice of assembly among Gaelic peoples involved the repetitive act of returning to particular cult landscapes on occasions of political and popular meetings and seasonal rituals. The pedigree of the landscapes selected
for gathering and the continuity observed in their use through time, reflect remarkable adherence to collective identities.
