Since 1981, the graduate students of the Harvard Celtic Department have organized and hosted the Annual Harvard Celtic Colloquium and have published selected papers in The Proceedings of the Harvard Celtic Colloquium. The Colloquium attracts students and scholars from North America, Ireland, Great Britain and Europe, and welcomes paper proposals dealing with any aspect of the Celtic languages, their literatures and their cultures in any period, including papers with an interdisciplinary or theoretical perspective.
The Colloquium is held each year in October, and opens with the John V. Kelleher Memorial Lecture sponsored by the department on the Thursday afternoon of the Colloquium weekend.
