Tha ùidh agam ann an eachdraidh agus cultur na Gàidhealtachd anns a h-uile linn, gu h-àraid linn nam fineachan eadar deireadh na siathamh linn deug agus deireadh na h-ochdamh linn deug ann an raon farsaing de chuspairean, iad seo, mar leanas gu h-ìosal, nam measg sin:

  • Malairt, coigrich agus luchd siubhail thall sa bhos air Ghaidhealtachd ro 1760
  • Coluadar eadar an àrainneachd agus na daoine air Ghaidhealtachd
  • Cultur is coimhearsnachd nam fineachan Gaidhealach
  • Gàidhlig! – mìle bliadhna de eachdraidh a’ chànain
  • Teacsaichean Beurla agus Gàidhlig – ann an làmh-sgrìobhainn agus ann an clò
  • Planntachadh, leudachadh cumhachd na stàite is buaidh seo air coimhearsnachdan na Gaidhealtachd
  • Buaidh foghlaim is comasan sgrìobhaidh air a’ Ghaidhealtachd thar nan linntean
  • Na Gaidheil anns a' bhaile-mhor agus thall-thairis

I am interested in all aspects of the history and culture of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland with a focus on the period between the end of the sixteenth century and the end of the eighteenth century. I would welcome proposals for research (either English or Gaelic medium) on a broad range of topics related to this including areas such as the history of:

  • Textual cultures, print and manuscript, of the early modern Gaelic world
  • Gaelic – the history of the language in Scotland over the last 1000 years
  • Plantation, state formation and Highland society 
  • Clans and Clanship. Society and culture in the Highlands
  • Resource exploitation and the environment in the early modern Gaidhealtachd
  • Commerce, trade and travellers to and from the Highlands prior to 1760
  • Education and literacy in the Highlands pre 1800
  • Gaelic communities and networks in Scotland and beyond
