2018 – 19 VISITING LECTURER SELECTED:
Announcement Coming Soon!
As we all know, last autumn, Scottish Heritage USA agreed to fund the entire amount necessary to support the 2018-19 Visiting Lectureship in Scottish Gaelic Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. GaelicUSA is proud to have enabled the creation of the first position of its kind in an American university.
It is now nearly time to announce the outstanding scholar who will fill the role of Visiting Lecturer in Scottish Gaelic Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in the 2018 – 2019 academic year. The selection has been made and it is exciting news indeed. Keep an eye out for the next GaelicUSA Newsletter to find out more.
The First Step. Thanks to the great generosity and commitment of Scottish Heritage USA, and all of our supporters, the upcoming Visiting Lectureship will be a tremendous first step towards our our goal of establishing an endowed chair in Scottish Gaelic Studies here in the United States. But there is a great deal of work left to do to reach that goal.
Your support continues to be essential to growing the movement that will soon provide an academic home base for Scottish Gaelic research and teaching at a major American university. Help us prepare for the next steps in the project and help us also give the first-ever Visiting Lecturer in Scottish Gaelic Studies a warm welcome to America.
