The UAHS has met every two years since 1976, alternating between co-sponsoring universities, museums, and historical agencies in Northern Ireland and the United States, to encourage and promote public awareness of the shared history and culture of Ulster and North America in a congenial and relaxing setting. The 2014 theme, "Contacts, Contests, and Contributions: Ulster-Americans in War and Society," seeks original papers in a broad range of relevant fields: history, language and literature, archaeology, art history and decorative arts, geography, folklife and folklore, religion, anthropology, music, economics, political relations, architecture, and museum studies, among others. The 2014 Symposium will aim to explore the transatlantic emigration, settlement, and continued experience of people from the north of Ireland, and to present new research that challenges habitual ways of thinking about these emigrants, their roles in American life, and their legacies.
