About the Project

Help a Gaelic speaking community rediscover and reconnect with its recent past. For centuries, the community migrated annually with their livestock and grazed their herds on the interior of Lewis, a practice that continued in Lewis up until the later 1930s, longer than almost anywhere else in Scotland. While transhumance has attracted a lot of recent scholarly interest, Comunn Eachdraidh Nis, a community-led grassroots local history organisation, started a programme of oral history recordings from the 1970s. These recordings, in Gaelic, offer the successful candidate the opportunity to develop a unique, community-led and individual (rather than an external) perspective on transhumance.  

This doctoral research project will offer the successful candidate the opportunity of working with and in a Gaelic speaking community. It is essential that applicants have a good Gaelic skills and a high level of fluency in Gaelic which must be demonstrated in the application process.
