The Economic and Social History Society is delighted to announce the outcome of our ‘New Researchers Prize’ for work presented at the annual conference by a graduate student.
The judging panel were extremely impressed with the quality and scope of the new researcher presentations at the 2022 conference. After much deliberation, the decision was made to split the prize. We are pleased to announce that the joint winners are:
Michael Loughman (Dublin City University): ‘The Slaughter of the Innocents’ – The calf skin bounty and reducing the national herd in 1930s Ireland.
Megan Mcauley (Maynooth University): ‘An integral part of life on the impoverished western seaboard’? Childhood and migratory labour in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century County Donegal
Congratulations to Michael and Megan on their outstanding work and presentations!
