thesisposted on 2015-08-01, 00:00 authored by Mhairi McIntyre
This thesis focused on the figure of the goddess within Scottish Highland Gaelic folk tales, namely the Cailleach Bheara. I examined her position in modern literature and film, engaging in discussions of ecofeminism, the preservation and understanding of Gaelic culture and the importance of strong female characters.
