Celtic Geographies questions traditional conceptualizations of Celticity that rely on an homogenous interpretation of what it means to be a Celt in contemporary society. The various contributors break away from these traditional interpretations to critically explore a Celticity that is diverse in character. The book explores a number of themes that are central to historical and contemporary Celticity: * the historical geographies of Celtic peoples * devolution and politics in Celtic regions, such as Wales and Scotland * the commodification of Celticity in the tourism practices of Brittany and Ireland * the role of diaspora in the development of Celtic identities, in both North America and in the west of Scotland * the relationship between Celticity and forms of contemporary culture.
