The XXIVth Ulster American Heritage Symposium will be held on 20th to 21st June 2024, hosted by the Mellon Centre for Migration Studies at the Ulster American Folk Park. 

The symposium addresses  “The Question How”. The central theme evolves around how migrants accomplished the journey across the Atlantic Ocean. This includes ways of communication, the migration trade, logistics, and rituals of departure and arrival. 

The symposium will encourage scholarly study and public awareness of the historical connections between Ulster and North America. It will also demonstrate the strong bonds and partnerships we continue to enjoy across the Atlantic. 

This is an academic symposium that promises stimulating exchanges over the weekend in Mellon Centre for Migration Studies.
