Mysticism, Myth & 'Celtic' Nationalism:

A Case Study of Cornwall


AHRC grant awarded for 'Mysticism, Myth and 'Celtic' Nationalism' project

Dr Marion Gibson in English and Dr. Garry Tregidga in Cornish Studies have been successful in obtaining a £252,000 grant from the AHRC for the 'Mysticism, Myth and 'Celtic' Nationalism' project.

This will fund a research collaboration between English, History and Cornish Studies at the Tremough Campus in Cornwall. The project explores literary and oral narratives of local identity as they are influenced by ideas of myth and mysticism.
