Cambridge-Edinburgh PhD workshop in Irish History
Doctoral students in the School attended a workshop at the University of Cambridge to discuss key issues in the writing of the history of modern Ireland. (Published 24 February 2016)
Doctoral students researching modern Irish history from the Universities of Cambridge and Edinburgh met in Cambridge in late January for a two-day intensive workshop, involving papers, discussions and wide-ranging debates.
Organised by Professors Eugenio Biagini (Cambridge) and Enda Delaney (Edinburgh), the objective was to foster critical engagement on key issues in writing the history of modern Ireland and its diaspora. A highlight was a formal dinner for participants hosted by Queen’s College Cambridge.
A second workshop for late 2016 when the Cambridge PhD students will be welcomed in Edinburgh.
