About the Event
Wed 22 to Sat 25
XXI Ulster-American Heritage Symposium.
Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh.
Hosted by the Mellon Centre for Migration Studies this year’s theme is: ‘Forty Years On: current directions in Ulster-American Heritage Studies’ The first Ulster-American Heritage Symposium, hosted by the New University of Ulster, Coleraine, was held in 1976. When the twenty-first Symposium is held in 2016 it will be ‘Forty Years On’. Therefore our aim in 2016 will be to review the achievements of Ulster American Heritage Studies over the last forty years, explore current directions, and discuss prospects for the next forty years. We look forward to reviewing the contribution of Ulster-American heritage studies in this regard, to learning from as many past contributors as possible, and welcoming new scholars in the field.
