Dr. Jennifer Redmond is Assistant Professor in Twentieth Century Irish History in the Department of History at Maynooth University. Her work focuses on the social history of modern Ireland and has involved a specific concentration on migration and gender. Between 2009-11 she held an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship which examined the travel permit records of Irish people in Britain during the Second World War, the first project to do so and the basis of the talk to be given for the USIHS at PRONI. She has published several articles as a result of this research and this archive is also featured in her 2018 monograph Moving Histories.
