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:

"Nad bheachd-sa, carson a tha e cudromach an t-àm a chaidh seachad a rannsachadh?"

'I think getting a perspective on the past is very important for modern societies and for all of us individually and collectively. We need to know about the direction of society and you need a long perspective on that, and that's what historians are equipped to provide, even though it's always highly debateable. I think history gives us a view of the tensions that arise from the flux of change and how people cope with change over long time, and if you look at that over the centuries that's hugely informative and enriching. I think that it ought to widen the mind; history ought to have that effect because it should show us that particular groups, particular nations, particular races are not exceptional in many respects; that we're not necessarily always going to be saying that certain types of people are, have particular characteristics because they're often characters which overlap and are international or universal.

So, I would say that history ought to get us away from stereotypes. Sometimes it has the opposite effect, of course, but in principal, and ideally, I think that it would be better if we emphasised the, some of the commonalities in experiences between peoples, between nations. So, concentrating on the Scottish impact, for instance, is an interesting exercise, and maybe a little bit controversial in the sense that it tends to make it sound exceptional, and that sort of patriotic duty about emphasising it, which isn't necessarily the best product of, for studying history.'
