Call for Papers

The Irish History Students’ Association is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for its 70thAnnual Conference. Join us on 28-29 February, 2020at University College Dublin, located minutes from Dublin’s city centre.

In 1920, the Government of Ireland Act formally split Ireland into a southern and northern territory. Recognising the long term significance this event has had, the Conference is themed around division. The Conference welcomes submissions on the following areas and methodologies. As in previous years, the Committee wish to stress that the Conference is not restricted to Irish historyand is keen to hear from historians working in a variety of locations.

  • Political Divisions in History
  • Divisions in Historiography
  • Gender Inequalities 
  • Race Relations
  • Religious Divides
  • Divisions in Social, Economic or Political Thinking
  • Sporting Divisions
  • Oral Histories. IHSA 2020 seeks to host a panel solely for oral historians. 
  • Digital Histories.

The Committee would also like to stress that the IHSA 2020 conference is keen to welcome historians working in medieval, pre-modern and modern fields from across the globe.
