Òraid: Juliette Desportes | Talk: Juliette Desportes

19:30 - 20:30

Oifis Oighreachd Ghabhsainn | UOG Business Centre, South Galson
An-asgaidh | FREE (Booking essential)

San òraid seo, bheir rannsaiche Juliette Desportes sùil air eachdraidh Ghabhsainn san naoidheamh linn deug. Chaidh Gabhsann fhuadach eadar na 1840an-60an, mu dheireadh falamh ann an 1963, a thòisich strì a mhair 60 bliadhna airson daoine a thilleadh ann. Chruinnich Juliette am fiosrachadh seo ann an trì mìosan a chaith i aig an Urras.

In this talk, doctoral researcher Juliette Desportes will explore the history of Galson in the nineteenth-century. From the 1840s to the 1860s, Galson was gradually cleared, and the final clearance of the village in 1863 was to be the start of a 60 year long fight for the re-settlement of the township. Based on primary research collected during a three-month internship with the Urras, Juliette’s talk will delve into this often forgotten episode of Scottish history

Òraid | Talk :To be of the Earth: Digging into Dùthchas

19:30 - 20:30

Oifis Oighreachd Ghabhsainn | UOG Business Centre, South Galson

An-asgaidh | FREE (Booking essential)

Anns a’ bhùth-obrach seo, brosnaichidh rannsaiche dotaireil Ryan Dziadowiec com-pàirtichean gus rannsachadh a dhèanamh air eachdraidh is freumhachadh dùthchais, is beachdan a thoirt seachad air dè dìreach a tha am facal a’ ciallachadh sa choimhearsnachd an-diugh. Facal làidir le barrachd air aon chiall, a chaidh a chleachdadh tro Strì an Fhearainn. Dè an seòrsa saoghal a bhios againn san àm ri teachd a thaobh staid a’ ghnàth-shìde agus ar cànan?

 

In this interactive workshop, doctoral researcher Ryan Dziadowiec will guide participants to dig into the etymology and history of dùthchas, as well as contribute to mapping out how the word is understood in the community today. Dùthchas is a powerful word with multiple meanings – and Gaels used it to campaign for change during the Land Struggle. As the word gains traction in the Gàidhealtachd yet again, what kind of future can we imagine together in which ‘being of the earth’ takes a central place as we fight against the climate (and language) crisis?

Airson cuid againn, tha dà àite ris an can sinn ar dachaigh – far an do rugadh sinn, far a bheil sinn a’ faireachdainn a bhuineas sinn fhathast, agus an t-àite far a bheil sinn a’ fuireach an-dràsta. Tha am fiolm seo mu chianalas airson an àite far an do rugadh iad a tha feadhainn a dh’fhàg Beàrnaraigh a' faireachdainn, agus a’ chuimhne air an àm a dh’fhalbh dhan fheadhainn a dh’fhuirich no a thill, nuair as e an dachaigh nan cridhe cuideachd far a bheil iad a’ fuireach.

For most of us, we have two places we call home – where we were born and still feel a connection to, and where we live now. This film is about those who left Bernera and the longing they feel for their birthplace, and the memories of those who left and stayed, though their home may now be somewhere else.
