Deconstructing Emigration: Legacies
27/07/2023 @ 19:00 - 20:00Free
As we commemorate the 250th Anniversary of the Sailing of The Hector from Lochbroom to Nova Scotia, Ullapool Museum looks to deconstruct the stories surrounding the mass migration of people to Canada by inviting academics, heritage consultants and first nations representative to discuss the wider impacts and effects of emigration to the New World.
The last event in our series brings together a range of speakers in a panel discussion to talk about the impact trans Atlantic emigration has had on Scotland and the Canadian First Nations Culture. The place of heritage tourism in our current economy and how modern genealogy has created better access to our heritage. We welcome back Dr Karly Kehoe of St Mary’s University, Dr Roger Lewis of Nova Scotia Museum and welcome for the first time Dr Joanna Rodgers University of the Highlands and Islands and Susan Parker of The McCulloch Heritage Centre in Pictou.
