CSANA'S Yearbook lion

A Celtic Studies periodical for the twenty-first century, The Celtic Studies Association of North America Yearbook, published by Four Courts Press, seeks to foster interdisciplinary and ground-breaking approaches to Celtic Studies. Each issue will be thematically organized, featuring scholarly articles of vital and timely interest not only to Celticists but also to literary critics, historians, linguists, folklorists, and scholars in other disciplines. The editor of Numbers 1-6 was Joseph Falaky Nagy (with co-editor Leslie Ellen Jones for 3-4); the new editor is Joseph Eska.
