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

 

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.

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.
