Dragons in Medieval Irish "Transitional Texts"

Date and Time: 
Monday, November 17, 2014. 05:00 PM - 06:30 PM
Meeting Location: 
Building 110 Room 112
Workshop: 
Oral Literature and Literate Orality
Meeting Description: 

This talk examines instances of dragon-slaying in the medieval Irish tradition and how characters tell or suppress the story of the encounter. Crucial to this is the transition from ‘oral’ to written traditions (and back in some cases) and the reflexive nature of medieval Irish literature.
