"This is obviously a difficult time in the higher education and public policy sectors, but I am optimistic my Fulbright scholarship at Harvard will contribute to helping me find a fit for my research skills in a permanent position. There are so many things that interest me about my field, and I’m confident that there are many years of stimulating research, teaching and public engagement ahead of me."

Revitalising Scottish Gaelic in Scotland and among diaspora communities in Nova Scotia and New England
A Fulbright research scholarship to Harvard University, which will investigate motivations to learn and use Scottish Gaelic among diaspora communities in New England. In many ways, the tenacity of our Gaelic language, and its survival into the 21st century both within and outwith our small country – in the face of serious long-term decline – is incredible.
