Mar phàirt de Thilleadh Dhachaigh 2009, chaidh co-labhairt eadar-nàiseanta trì latha - Buaidh Chruinneil na h-Alba - a chumail ann an Taigh-chluiche Eden Court, Inbhir Nis, bho 22-24 Dàmhair. Thàinig sgoilearan, eachdraichean is eòlaichean eile còmhla gus deasbaireachd fhallain a bhrosnachadh mu eachdraidh imrich agus a' bhuaidh a bha aig muinntir na h-Alba thall-thairis.

Rinn Am Baile agallamhan le grunn luchd-labhairt rè na co-labhairt. San earrainn chlaistinnich seo, tha an Proifeasair Eric Richards a' freagairt na ceiste:

"Dè a thog d' ùidh anns a' chuspair shònraichte agad fhèin?"

'It's, it's a slightly complicated story, but while I was a student doing my honour's thesis in England, I did some work on the local rural estates of the Marquis of Stafford in the early nineteenth century. Having done that, I then went on to do some postgraduate work in the same family because they was a colossal body of family papers in the local archives in England, belonging to the Dukes of Sutherland, who owned not only estates in Staffordshire and Shropshire, but also the first railway company - the Liverpool and Manchester Railway - and also part, the profits of the Bridgewater Canal, as well as, of course, the county of Sutherland, or most, most part of that. And I began to find that story of the money that was being flooded up to the Highlands from the south, through this family, and then the Clearances, of course, and the drama of that, totally absorbing.

And I continued to study that and began - I had terrible - a great deal of interest in, in Marxist history, and Marx himself talks about the Sutherland Clearances and the Dukes of Sutherland and the Duchess of Sutherland and the Countess of Sutherland, so that brought it into a sharp focus and I became increasingly interested in the uses of landlord power, aristocratic money, and the displacement of rural people which is, of course, central to the Highland story. And I did a lot of work on that, and when I came to live in Scotland I was able to focus more on that still, and that was where I was focussing my academic attention. So, it was a combination of Marx, of the serendipity of finding this colossal body of family papers belonging to the Leveson-Gowers, the Dukes of Sutherland, and, and an interest in the economic history of ordinary folk, here being engineered, of course, by the aristocratic family. So, I was interested in that, in the, in that particular context, but then I was widening it out a bit more because I'm interested in the whole general problem of why rural people have been leaving the rural world over the last two centuries, into urbanisation, into the modern world, and what are the dynamics of that.'
