Gaelic languages have a nearly three hundred year history on this continent. In both Irish and Scottish Gaelic, stories were told, songs were composed, sermons were preached, and essays were written on this soil. However, much North American Irish and Scottish Gaelic literature still awaits scholarly examination.

With the Harvard Symposium on North American Gaelic Literature, we seek to advance the study of the Gaelic diasporic experience through the promotion of an ongoing dialogue between scholars of North American Irish and Scottish Gaelic literature.
