First Circular

The Forum for Research in the Languages of Scotland and Ulster is pleased to
announce that the ninth conference in this series will be held in July 2009.
Following the success of the 2006 conference in Islay, we have again selected an
island venue; and the conference well be held in Orkney College, Kirkwall.

The rich heritage of the Northern Isles, with their unique Norse-influenced
cultures and well-preserved local dialects, provide a wealth of material for
discussion; and it is anticipated that many papers presented at the conference
will draw on this. Among the scholars who have already offered papers are:

Magnus and Andro Linklater, "Eric Linklater and Orkney"
Andrew Noble, "Edwin Muir: Orkney and Scotland"
Edna Longley, "Irish and Scottish Island Poems"
Michael Longley, "My Orkney Poems"
Peder Gammeltoft, "Shetland and Orkney Island-Names- A Dynamic Group"

and several others have been approached, including Peder Gammeltoft, Donna
Heddle, Berit Sandnes and Doreen Waugh.

As always, however, papers on any other aspect of the languages of Scotland and
Ulster will be welcome. Offers are cordially invited, and should be sent by 15
October 2008, by e-mail or by post to the following address:

J. Derrick McClure,
School of Language and Literature,
King's College,
Aberdeen University,
Old Aberdeen AB24 2UB,

Details regarding conference fees and the social programme will be announced in
future circulars, of which the next will be sent out in September 2008.
The Forum Committee looks forward to hearing from you, and to welcoming you to
the conference next summer.
