IHSA 2016 Proceedings

Dear followers,

 

We at IHSA2016 have just received some great news! Owing to a budget surplus, we have been fortunate enough to be in a position whereby we can offer those who spoke at our conference in February, the opportunity to have their papers published in our proceedings journal. Retrospective will be the first student led IHSA publication in over a decade and judging by the calibre of the papers heard in February, there should be no shortage of excellent papers to read!

 

Stay tuned for further information.

Accommodation

 

The Irish History Students Association, 66th Annual Conference will take place in Galway, from 19-21 February 2016. As a major tourist location, Galway boasts both a considerable volume and diversity of accommodation sources.  The vast majority of these are within a two-mile radius of the University.  Prices and quality vary considerably, but as the conference is being held in February, it is envisaged that accommodation should be reasonable. Nonetheless, advance booking is essential. For groups travelling together there are a large number of student hostels in the city, which may suit your needs.

 

This list is intended as a starting point to help the attendee. We have broken down matters by the type of accommodation, then further by star-rating and price.  Web links are included throughout, as well as photographs, guide prices, reviews, maps and distance from the University and Bus/Train station.  Those travelling are advised to book early and to ‘shop around’ so as to secure good value and reasonable price where possible.

 

There may well be slightly cheaper options available, however many of these are of a less acceptable standard than we are willing to select for you, our guests. We have borne these considerations in mind, adding in cost and distance also, to give you the best information possible to make your choice.

Ladies and gentlemen, all good things must come to a close and it is with great happiness that I can tell you that the Call for Papers has closed. The deadline has also elapsed for the submission of papers for the Galway County Council Prizes, the James Lydon Memorial Prize for Medieval History and the Margaret Ó hÓgartaigh Memorial Prize for the History of Medicine and Society.

The conference has been fully planned and organised at this stage. Lunch will take place in the nearby College Bar, a 300m walk.

Tea & Coffee Breaks will take place in the Arts Millennium Building (AMB) ground floor foyer. 20151012_113657The panels will be held in the adjacent tutorial rooms (each can seat 30 participants) in the Arts Millennium Building. The rooms open directly out on to the foyer, meaning it will take less than a minute to reach the lovely tea! The workshop will also take place in the AMB, in the Ó Tnuthail Theatre, accessed via the stairs in the atrium of the AMB and also via the rear exit on the ground floor of the AMB.

The Launch on Friday evening will take place in the Moore Institute rooms, on the ground floor of the Hardiman Research Building (HRB). The HRB is directly across from the AMB and you can access the building by the Main Library door, then walk through the foyer, past the large information screen and turn right. The College Bar will also host the History Quiz and again finger food will be served.

‘Dr. Margaret Ó hÓgartaigh’ memorial Prize for the History of Medicine and Society

Dr. Margaret ÓhÓgartaigh

 

Dear Colleagues, the organising committee of the Irish History Students’ Association, Annual Conference for Galway 2016 are pleased to announce that in addition to the prizes being offered by the IHSA, the Galway organising committee have secured additional external sponsorship from Cambridge Scholars Publishing for two additional, once-off, prizes for 2016.

Students are sometimes asked to think about which figure from history they would most like to invite to a dinner party. Dr. Margaret Ó hÓgartaigh, nee Whelan, has to be up there with the absolute best. A native of Killaloe, Co. Clare, Margaret first came to Galway in 1985, where she threw herself into An Cumann Staire, serving in a multitude of offices, including chair of the IHSA. She was also quite an astute businesswoman, boosting sales of the Cumann’s Journal Stair with a free pint of Guinness! But there was also a serious and earnest side to Margaret. She was tireless in her research, even working on her latest book while she was unwell. She helped open new avenues of historical research into areas which this prize hopes to broadly emulate for a new generation of scholars to take up her mantle. With her intrepid zeal for life and for her work and family, we are proud to be associated with and to be able to offer this prize in her memory.

Kathleen Lynn launch, c.2006.

The prize will be awarded to the best paper in any one (or multiple) category listed on the following sheet. They will be independently judged PRIOR to being given, which means that all interested parties must pre-submit their paper (or latest working draft), no later than the 19th January 2016, i.e. one calendar month before the conference.

Further details are listed below on each particular prize. The adjudicator’s decision is final and no discussion whatsoever will be entered into. Prizes will be awarded at the Conference Dinner (Harbour Hotel, Galway, 20 February, 8pm). All entrants must attend the conference AND deliver their papers. Failure to attend and/or speak is grounds for disqualification.
