Rannsachadh na Gàidhlig is a biennial academic conference series established in 2000 to promote research on any and all topics related to Gaelic as well as to promote research through the medium of Gaelic. We welcome the submission of abstracts for research papers and for posters on any area of scholarship relating to Gaelic, including literature (oral and written), song and musical traditions, history, onomastics, linguistics, sociolinguistics, education, language policy, media studies, politics, social policy, economics, and so forth.
’S e co-labhairt sgoilearach a thèid a chumail gach dàrna bliadhna a tha ann an Rannsachadh na Gàidhlig. Chaidh an sreath cho-labhairtean seo a stèidheachadh anns a’ bhliadhna 2000 gus gach seòrsa rannsachaidh co-cheangailte ris a’ Ghàidhlig, agus gus cleachdadh na Gàidhlig ann an rannsachadh, adhartachadh.
