Teaching

Bidh mi a’ teagasg nan cùrsaichean Gàidhlig Urramach a leanas:
• Bàrdachd Cogaidh 1930-1950
• An Nobhail Gàidhlig
• Guth nam Ban ann am bàrdachd 1450-1750
• Eadar Croit is Kiosk: bàrdachd an 20mh linn [le neach-teagaisg eile]
Tha mi cuideachd a’ co-òrdanachadh nan cùrsaichean Gàidhlig 1C agus Gàidhlig 2B agus a’ teagasg litreachas orra.

The above are the Honours literature courses I convene and teach through the medium of Gaelic. I also convene the Gaelic 1C and Gaelic 2B courses, and usually teach their literature component.
