Event description

Description

This academic poster exhibition will explore new research being undertaken by Postgraduate Taught Students in History in the School of HAPP.

Transnationalism is a methodological approach which is in vogue at this time with historians. However, what qualifies as ‘transnational’ remains a matter of academic debate.

This event will aim to showcase the research of three PGR students, Steven Egan, Melissa Baird, and Barry Sheppard, and their different approaches to transnational research.

The first area of research deals with transnational reactions to the partition of Ireland.

The second area of research explores the transnational connections between the civil rights movements of the United States, and Northern Ireland in the 1960s.

The third area of research examines the transnational connections made by the Irish rural organisation Muintir na Tíre (the People of the Land) in the decades of the 1930s - 1960s.

The display will take the audience through what transnational history is, and how each research student applies the various strands of transnationalism to their own particular areas.

The organisers will be on hand to give a short talk on transnationalism and their own particular research area.

There will be a reception with refreshments at 12 noon on 29th May 2019 in the Social Space on the first floor of the Graduate School.
