DECLINE OF THE GAELIC LANGUAGE 1700-1850 TUESDAY 16TH JULY10.00AM Presented by Dr James Donaldson

Sponsored by PMI Victorian History Library. The sharp decline in the use of the Gaelic language between 1700 and 1850 was but one consequence of the increased interaction of the Highlands with the vast transformations sweeping Europe and Great Britain at that time. Indeed, it was not only the continuing loss of the Gaelic language from many counties in Scotland, but the transformation of the Gaelic culture that supported it, which brought about an utter change in the Scottish Highlands between 1700 and the 1850s.

Dr James Donaldson is the author of ‘Farewell to the Heather: An account of the government assisted emigrants from the highlands and islands of Scotland to New South Wales 1837-1840’
