Regional Study of Life and Society in Galloway and Dumfries

LIFE AND SOCIETY IN DUMFRIES AND GALLOWAY: A REGIONAL STUDY

 European Ethnological Research Centre, School of Scottish Studies, University of Edinburgh

 A major new project to study the changing everyday life of the people of Dumfries and Galloway, over the centuries. This ambitious study, believed to be the first of its kind in the UK, will result in publications in a variety of formats. It seeks to bring together research carried out by D&G inhabitants, academics and others sharing interests in such topics as the family, identity, occupations, farming, land management, fishing and maritime culture, industry, population movement, communications, local administration, sports, customs, place-names, religion, emigration and immigration, language, literature, folklore, art, music and song, and intellectual life.
In short, whatever affected the lives of the folk as described, wherever possible, in their own voice.

 The project will be launched at two venues:  

The Buccleuch Centre, Langholm Saturday 15 October 2.00pm – 4.00pm

 and

 The Catstrand, New Galloway Saturday 22 October 2.00pm – 4.00pm
