    Welcome to the Institute of Ulster Scots Studies.

    The Institute of Ulster Scots Studies was established in January 2001. It is located at the Magee Campus of the University of Ulster.

    The goal of the Institute is to explore the history, heritage and legacy of the UlsterScots people. The focus of the research carried out will be on the Ulster Scots Diaspora. Both the common and the diverse currents of the Ulster Scots experience have beenoften ignored: the first because of a tradition of writing distinctive national historieswhich tended to fragment that experience geographically; the second because of atradition of cultural essentialism which tended to displace difference in favour ofnational uniformity.

    In a world of self-conscious nation states, the cultural connections of people whoshared no single national identity brings problems of conceptualisation. Ulster Scots studies expand the boundaries of conventional understanding but hasoften been intellectually marginalised.

    The role of the Institute is therefore to promote the experience of the Ulster Scots asa mainstream academic concern.

    publications) Further details to follow.Contact: [email protected] for more information. The Monreagh Ulster Scots Heritage Centre is hosting a series of creative writingworkshops

    Facilitator for the 8 week Course will be award-winning poet Patricia Morris who has manyyears experience in hosting workshops and who holds a Masters Degree in Creative Writing.

    The emphasis will be on creating a warm, relaxed and supportive atmosphere in which eachwriter - whatever their previous experience of writing - builds confidence in their ability to createoriginal and valuable pieces of work in the language of their choice. It would be wonderful todiscover poets who have perhaps never put pen to paper before but who speak Ulster Scots intheir day to day lives and who would like to be given the opportunity to express themselves inprint.

    I will be encouraging each person to find their own Voice and to express themselves in thelanguage they are most comfortable and familiar with as I feel this will create a vibrancy andauthenticity to the work which is produced. As part of the Course we will be exploring the useof Ulster-Scots in poetry its rhythms and use of language by reading the works of the Weaverpoets and modern day poets.

    All are welcome, whether beginners or more experienced writers who would simply like toexplore another facet to their writing.

    The Course will run from Tuesday 18/05/10 29/06/10; 11am - 12.30pm each day and willcost 60 euro per person.
