VUW Wellington Scottish Interest Group-There and Back Again: The Geography and Radicalism of the Ulster-Scots

April 28, 2021 All day

The Scots, early emigrants from Ireland, gave the country its name. David Hannah (VUW History Dept) will explain how James VI found it politically prudent to settle some back in Ulster and their struggle to reconcile their devout Protestant faith with a radical attitude towards the emancipation of their Irish Catholic countrymen at the Victoria University of Wellingtn Law School, Old Government Buildings, Lambton Quay (between Bunny and Whitmore Streets);  entrance door from Bunny Street.
