Per Scribendum, Sumus: Ethnopoesis, or: Writing Heritage. A Cèilidh in Honour of Mairéad Nic Craith
Mair'ead Nic Craith's has sought to integrate critical heritage studies, cultural history, literature and folklore into a creative ethnology. Issues of community and place, memory and nostalgia are key themes in her work. The tensions around forms, definitions and uses of heritage are picked up in the contributions to this book. Research essays engage with the wide range of topics Mair'ead has explored. Other contributions note her support and mentoring or illustrate the author's appreciation of her work through prose, music and artistic representations. Ullrich Kockel teaches at Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh, the Latvian Academy of Culture and Vytautas Magnus University Kaunas. He is Emeritus Professor of Ethnology at Ulster University, a Member of the Royal Irish Academy, and Mair'ead's anam cara.
