CFP: Irish History Students’ Association Conference, UCC, 25 – 27 Feb 2011

Deadline for proposals: 22nd January 2011

Irish History Students’ Association (IHSA)
University College Cork
25th-27th February 2011

The conference will take place the weekend of the 25th-27th February, and is usually attended by upwards of 120 students and faculty members from inside and outside Ireland. This year, the keynote speaker will be John A Murphy, the reception on the Friday night will be held in the Aula Maxima, and the conference dinner will be hosted in a local Cork hotel on the Saturday night. On the Sunday, there will be a walking tour of Cork City (weather permitting), with intermittent breaks in some of Cork’s finest pubs for some music to end the conference.

Last year was the IHSAs 50th anniversary, so its safe to say the conference is a well-established one at this stage and hopefully next years conference in Cork will be a success. The deadline for the call for papers is the 22nd January, so any students (postgraduate and undergraduate) interested in putting in a paper please do. Also, the postgraduate committee organising the conference will be putting information up on the Facebook page regularly, so have a look and send on to anyone you think might be interested.

Papers should not exceed 20 minute delivery (2500-3000 words). Abstracts not exceeding 300 words, with a brief author profile, should be sent to no later than 22 January 2011.
