The AHRC Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies at the University of
Aberdeen will host a series of three one-day interdisciplinary
conferences in 2008 looking at the global experiences of Irish and
Scottish migrants and their descendants. Participants are invited to
consider the varied ways in which Irish and Scottish overseas settlement
led to the exploration of new intellectual, political and
environmental "frontiers." Keynote speakers include Patrick Griffin
(Univ. of Virginia), John MacKenzie (Lancaster University), Lindsay
Proudfoot (Queen's University Belfast), and David Wilson (Univ. of
Toronto). Each one-day event will focus on a different theme:
Intellectual Frontiers (23 February 2008); Political Frontiers (3 May
2008); and Environmental Frontiers (21 June 2008). Proposals for papers
(100-200 words) should be sent by 15 December 2007 to Dr. Michael Brown
(m.brown_at_abdn.ac.uk) or to Dr. Rosalyn Trigger (r.trigger_at_abdn.ac.uk).
