The Irish History Students’ Association is pleased to announce that due to an increased interest, the Call for Papers for its Annual Conference, which will take place in NUI Galway from 19–21 February 2016, has been extended until 19 January 2016.

Proposals are invited for papers (in English or Irish) from both undergraduates and postgraduates in Ireland, on any historical topic or period and from those studying Irish history abroad. Abstracts of no more than 250 words for 20 minute research papers (approx. 2,500–3,000 words in length) should be submitted, along with a short personal biography of no more than 100 words.

Poster presentations are also invited. Posters should be A0 in size and may encompass any style or theme, similar to the criteria for written papers. Presenters should be prepared to speak for up to 10 minutes regarding their posters, with or without an accompanying short paper.
