Writing the troubles - PhD and early career researchers workshop

The aim of this collaborative research workshop is to reflect critically on the interpretative and conceptual issues raised by writing the contested history of the recent conflict in Northern Ireland. A public lecture to be delivered by Professor Richard English (Queen’s University Belfast) is associated with this event. This two-day workshop will use pre-circulated papers as a basis for discussion and dialogue, and places are limited.

The event is funded by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade under the 1916/2016 Programme and the University of Edinburgh. Accommodation will be provided for participants and a limited number of travel bursaries will also be available. In allocating travel bursaries, preference will be given to participants who do not have access to other sources of funding.

Please send a 200 word summary of your proposed paper and a brief statement outlining how participating in the  'Writing the Troubles' workshop will benefit your research together with an indication of whether you wish to apply for a travel  bursary to by Friday 7 July 2017.

Organisers:  Dr Thomas Dolan, Roseanna Doughty and Rachael Thomas
