The seventh edition of the annual Thinking About Mythology in the 21st Century Colloquium, jointly organised by the departments of Celtic and Scottish Studies and Scandinavian Studies in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) at the University of Edinburgh, has been announced.

Led by Emily Lyle, founder of the Traditional Cosmology Society and author of Ten Gods: A New Approach to Defining the Mythological Structures of the Indo-Europeans (extensively reviewed in a recent issue of Cosmos), the colloquium will focus this year on the interrelations between History and Myth, with keynote addresses by Joseph Nagy (Harvard) and Emily Lyle herself.
