Workshop on “Urras na Gàidhlig”

April 29, 2021

Another online workshop was held on the recommendation in the Gaelic Crisis publication for the establishment of “Urras na Gàidhlig”. Iain Campbell from the Language Sciences Institute at the University of the Highlands and Islands spoke on the topic “Building Resilience in Gaelic-speaking Communities: Governance, Agency, Participation“.

The presentation is written in English, but Iain spoke to it in Gaelic, and in the debate that followed all those in attendance who raised questions and comments also used Gaelic, with island residents from Skye, Lewis, Uist and Barra in attendance, as well as representatives from universities in the Soillse network.

Here is a PDF of the presentation.
