Course Summary

This course explores the concepts of culture transfer and adaptation in the context of Scottish emigration. The approach is based upon community case studies, mainly in Eastern Canada, though material is included from other areas of settlement. Various genres of oral tradition and aspects of material culture and community life are dealt with, largely from the perspective of a Highlands and Islands background.
