The 22nd meeting of the Ulster American Symposium will be held for the first time in Canada, at the University of Toronto, 13-15 June 2018.
Since 1976 the Ulster-American Heritage Symposium has met every two years, alternating between co-sponsoring universities and museums in Ulster and North America. Its purpose is to encourage scholarly study and public awareness of the historical connections between Ulster and North America including what is commonly called the Scotch-Irish or Ulster-Scots heritage.
A number of the Foundation's delegates who participated in our June 2016 Conference presented papers at the 40th anniversary of the symposium which was hosted by the Mellon Centre for Migration Studies and some of our other delegates might remember taking part in the opening evening of the event.
The theme of the 2018 symposium is “Borderlands: Migration and Settlement in Unsettled and Unsettling Regions" and the University of Toronto are now welcoming papers on this theme. For more information click here
