We are delighted to announce that Dr Julie Brown of Clatsop Community College, Oregon, USA, will be coming to Dornoch as a Fulbright Programme Specialist in March 2018. Dr Brown has research, teaching and community engagement interests in coastal and maritime culture and literature of the sea and will give seminars, workshops, readings and mentoring on these cross-disciplinary themes, assisting us thereby with the further development of the Coastal History strand of our work. As part of this, Julie will be giving a public lecture to which everyone is welcome.

The lecture, 'Where Water Comes Together with Other Water: The River/Sea Culture of Chinook Indians', will discuss how the geographical features of the Columbia River estuary on the Pacific Coast shaped the culture, world view, language, and myths of the Chinook Indians. Special emphasis is placed on the position of canoes and salmon within this.

We should be grateful if you could confirm your attendance prior to the event. Should anyone wish to attend by VC/Cisco Spark, please contact historyevents@uhi.ac.uk.
