Description

Eighteenth-century Manuscript Culture in the Wider Gaelic World: The Manuscripts of Rev James McLagan (1728-1805) in Context

A one-day conference on Eighteenth-century Manuscript Culture in the Wider Gaelic World

The Rev. James McLagan (1728-1805) was a pre-eminent Scottish Gaelic scholar, poet, manuscript-collector, lexicographer as well as a military chaplain. His career with the Black Watch regiment saw him on active military service throughout Ireland, the Isle of Man and in the American War of Independence. Using McLagan and his extensive collection of Gaelic literary material as a point of departure, this event explores issues of eighteenth-century Irish, Manx and Scottish Gaelic manuscript and literary culture, with a particular focus on fiannaigheacht lays and ‘Ossian’, scholarly networks, oral tradition, historical and political contexts for manuscript creation and collection. This event is part of the ‘Gaelic Literature in Enlightenment Scotland: The McLagan Ossianic material’ research network, funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh and led by Celtic and Gaelic, University of Glasgow, with the support of the Royal Irish Academy’s Coiste Léann na Gaeilge, Litríocht na Gaeilge agus na gCultúr Ceilteach.
