Research interests

Gu ruige seo, tha an rannsachadh agam air dèiligeadh ri litreachas Gàidhlig eadar an 18mh agus an 20mh linn, le fòcas air rosg ann an irisean agus colbhan Gàidhlig phàipearan-naidheachd. Tha ùidh agam ann an taobhan sòisealta agus eachdraidheil nan teascaichean seo agus anns na h-irisean fhèin, leithid cheistean a’ buntainn ri litearrachd agus an ceangal ri beul-aithris. A bharrachd air sin, tha mi air obair a dhèanamh air litreachas nan eilthireach, an dà chùid ann an Alba agus ann an dùthchannan eile (Canada, Astràila, Sealann Nuadh, na h-Innseachan an Iar agus na h-Innseachan an Ear). O chionn ghoirid, tha mi air a bhith rannsachadh mar a chleachdadh Gàidhlig air a’ Ghàidhealtachd san 19mh linn, mar eisimpleir, a’ sgrùdadh sanasan-obrach a bha a’ sireadh daoine le Gàidhlig; a’ coimhead air àite na Gàidhlig ann an taighean-caothaich agus am measg an fheadhainn a bha ag obair leis na bochd; agus mar a chleachdadh Gàidhlig air beulaibh coimiseanan an riaghaltais anns na deicheadan mu dheireadh den an linn. Tha mi ag amas air dealbh nas coileanta a chruthachadh de chleachdadh na Gàidhlig agus seo mar adhbhar strì ann an cuid de shuidheachaidhean; agus tron a seo a bhith a’ soilleireachadh mar a bha cleachdadh cànain a’ buntainn ri dàimhean sòisealta agus ri cumhachd ann an Gàidhealtachd na 19mh linn.

Pròiseactan rannsachaidh air a bheil mi ag obair:

• cleachdadh cànain air a’ Ghàidhealtachd san 19mh linn
• dàin Fhearchair D. MhicDhòmhnaill, Loch Aillse agus Sealann Nuadh
• òrain agus bàrdachd le boireannaich ann am pàipearan-naidheachd na 19mh linn

My research to date has dealt with Gaelic literature from the 18th to the 20th century with a particular focus on Gaelic prose in periodicals and newspaper columns. I am particularly interested in the social and historical dimensions of these texts and of the publications themselves, including questions relating to orality and literacy. I have also worked on literature of the Highland diaspora within Scotland and abroad (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the West Indies and the East Indies). More recently I have been working on language use in the nineteenth-century Highlands, for example, examining job advertisements seeking Gaelic speakers; considering the use of Gaelic in lunatic asylums and in interactions with those in receipt of support from parochial boards; and the use of Gaelic in evidence given to government inquiries in the later nineteenth century. In studying this often-contested ground of the language of communication I aim to produce a nuanced picture of language contact and provide a deeper understanding of social relations and dynamics of power in the nineteenth-century Highlands.

Current research projects include:

• language use in the nineteenth-century Highlands
• the compositions of Lochalsh and New Zealand poet, Farquhar D. MacDonell
• the songs and poetry of women in the later nineteenth-century press
