The method of evaluation will be a final exam, which will be written at home and submitted online via Moodle. Students will be provided with a list of questions and will be asked to choose 4 to respond to. Each question will be worth 25 points.
Course objectives include:
Familiarity with the major sources of information about Celtic myth and religion, particularly from the Celtic speaking peoples of the ancient and medieval periods.
Understanding of problems attached to treating Celtic culture, and particularly myth and religion, as a unified system across geographical and temporal divisions.
Knowledge of core concepts, world-view, and means of transmission of evidence for Celtic myth and religion.
The exam questions will give students the opportunity to engage with these issues.
The examination topics will be based on the lectures and readings.
All required readings will be provided as PDFs or links to online sources on the class moodle site.
