Building on sessions which have run consecutively at the IMC since 2011, this year three panels are proposed on the subject of 'Ireland in the Age of Bede'. This panel explores themes relating to networks and connections. Papers cover: the influence of Lérins on Insular culture (Bonner); engagement with ideas of geography and orthodoxy (Bracken); and connections between Insular Romani in the 7th and early 8th centuries (Stancliffe).
