I'm working on what is effectively a "self-designed" Master's degree
(technically a Master's in Liberal Arts). Since we don't have anything
specific to Celtic studies, I've been taking classes in subjects such as
folklore, India, ritual studies, tribal studies, etc and relating them back.
The fields I feel I am most deficient in are archaeology and art history.
Therefore, I sent in a proposal to work on a directed reading/independent
study that would integrate these two topics (and also show links to social
life). My proposal was approved, but I am having trouble finding anyone who
can oversee such a project. Here's where you guys come in...
I would like to compile a potential syllabus. With this, I might be able
to interest a professor who has expertise in say, Renaissance Art, but no
knowledge of Celtic anything.
I am looking for introductory sources and those that offer theories/strategies
that can be applied to any time/culture. My area of study is pre-Christian
Ireland- so any books that deal with that period/area are doubly welcome.
Thanks for any help,
