Modern Irish History

Seminar or event series

The Modern Irish History Seminar is a research seminar of the History Faculty of the University of Cambridge. It provides a forum to explore new perspectives in Irish history since 1800. The Seminar is methodologically eclectic and open to cognate disciplines (including geography, sociology, demographics and economics). It does not aim to produce ‘a school’, except in the sense that it is a collective and pluralist endeavor, which encourages diversity and original thinking.

The seminar is generously supported by the Trevelyan Fund of the Faculty of History, University of Cambridge, with a contribution from the Embassy of Ireland in London and private benefactors.
