Almost 20 years ago David C. Harvey, Rhys Jones, Neil McInroy, and Christine Milligan published their edited volume, Celtic Geographies: Old Culture, New Times. While this work highlighted and raised awareness of the "Celtic Fringe" (and beyond), much has occurred in the past two decades. From the continual development of devolved politics and nationalism in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, to the effect of Brexit on the Celtic nations, to the greater recognition of Galicia and Asturias as part of the Celtic Fringe, the time has arrived for a renewed interest and debate on Celtic geographies within the field of geography.

The goal of this paper session is to provide a platform for presentations ranging from pan-Celtic to individual case studies. With focuses on devolution, nation building, Brexit, non-traditional Celtic cases, performing Celticness, identity, colonialism, etc… we hope to connect scholars with diverse topical, methodological, and regional focuses through the medium of Celtic geographies.
