Cambridge Colloquium in ASNC

The Cambridge Colloquium in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic (CCASNC) was held for the first time in 2000. It is organised by the graduate students in the Department. A plenary paper is given by an invited speaker, generally from outside the University, and shorter papers are given by graduate students from Cambridge and elsewhere, on the designated theme. The proceedings are published in Quaestio Insularis.

CCASNaC is an annual colloquium run by a committee elected from the postgraduate community in the department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at the University of Cambridge. Initially focusing on the literature and history of the early mediaeval British Isles and Scandinavia, CCASNaC has, as it has developed, come to include papers on the all aspects of the early Insular world, including material culture, theology, palaeography, art history and musicology.

The papers given at CCASNaC are published in the proceedings journal, Quaestio Insularis, which also publishes the paper of the colloquium's keynote speaker (usually a renowned scholar in the field). Copies of Quaestio Insularis are available from the department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic.





The theme for CCASNC 2017 will be 'Identity and Ideology'. The call for papers has now closed.



The Committee is delighted to announce that the 2017 colloquium will take place on Saturday, 11th February 2017 in room GR06/07 in the Faculty of English, and will be followed by a formal dinner at Wolfson College. The keynote speaker will be Dr Alex Woolf, of the University of St Andrews.
