The Economic and Social History Society is delighted to announce the outcome of our 2023 ‘New Researchers Prize’ for work presented at our annual conference by a graduate student.
Our 50th Annual Conference saw an outstanding range or presentations from new researchers, making the judging process all the more difficult.
The award this year is being presented jointly to Fiona Slevin (UCD) and Michael Lawrence (QUB).
Fiona’s paper was a case study of female proprietorship in post-Famine rural Ireland (case study of Mohill, Co Leitrim), while Michael’s looked at male homosexuality and emigration in Ireland, 1891-1922.
Congratulations to both Fiona and Michael, and all the other new researchers who participated in this year's conference!
