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 Dr Anndra MacPhilip a' freagairt na ceiste:

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

'As is always the case, I suppose, the, any interest in history really springs from personal family background experience etc., and it came in a kind of a number of different ways. I, my grandfather was in the army and fought during the Great War and I suppose I got interested in military history as a result of my grandfather's experience - I'd seen photographs of him; his old army kilt, etc. It was a very personal family that drew me to towards military history, but not military history in terms of battles fought in, but rather more about how the Highlands' society was shaped by its relationship to the British army through mass involvement of manpower etc., and so I ended up doing research on the impact of the British army's mass use of Highland manpower and how that affected communities. And that led me, in one sense, into my, what was my early work on the military recruiting economy in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

But rather less impressive, or professional, I had my first pint in a bar in Harris called the Rodel Hotel and when I had my first legal pint in that bar I remember hearing that the hotel had been built originally by a man called Alexander Macleod of Harris who'd come from, had made his money in India, in the middle of the eighteenth century, and had come back to Harris, and had built this large country house as then, and that became the Rodel Hotel and the pub that I was drinking in. And I thought how on earth did somebody from Harris end up in India, on the other side of the world, and end up coming back? And so my per-, my current area of research and interest is on Scots in India and China and I got to that by drinking in the Rodel Hotel. So it's not exactly-, I should probably emphasise the personal dimension of my grandfather, not my, not my drinking in the pub, But it's, I suppose that, in some sense, gives you that even university lecturers tend to be drawn to history through very personal experiences.'


EACHDRAIDH-BEATHA

'S e òraidiche ann an Roinn na h-Eachdraidh aig Oilthigh Obar Dheathain a th' ann an Dtr Anndra MacFhilip. Am measg fhoillseachaidhean air eachdraidh Ghàidhealach tha: 'More Fruitful than the Soil: Army, Empire and the Scottish Highlands, 1715-1815' (East Linton, 2000) agus 'The Political Culture of the Scottish Highlands from Culloden to Waterloo', The Historical Journal, 46 (2003). Tha ùidhean rannsachaidh an-dràsta air an eòlas diofraichte a bh' aig Albannaich, Èireannaich agus Cuimrich san roinn Àsianach de dh'iompaireachd Bhreatainn san 18mh is tràth san 19mh linntean.

Bidh fhoillseachadh as ùire, 'A Union for Empire? Scotland, the English East India Company and the British Union', Scottish Historical Review, 87 (2008) air a leantainn aig deireadh na bliadhna seo le, "A Reticent People?': The Welsh in Asia, 1700-1815', ann an Huw Bowen (ed.), Wales and the British Empire (Manchester, 2009) agus, mar cho-dheasaiche le Micheál O' Siochrú ann an, 'Forging the State: European State Formation and the Anglo-Scottish Union of 1707' (Dùn Dèagh, 2009).
