The Economic & Social History Society of Ireland are pleased to announce we will once again be offering a new researcher prize at the annual conference in October 2022. This will be awarded to the graduate student(s) who present the best paper as judged by the panel
Those wishing to be considered for the prize should submit an abstract in line with the call for papers by 30th September, and indicate they wish to be considered for the prize.
The judging panel were extremely impressed with the quality and scope of the new researcher presentations at last year's conference and look forward to welcoming more new researchers this year.
Proposals for papers, or for panels of papers, are solicited for the annual conference of the Economic and Social History Society of Ireland, which will be held at Maynooth University on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th October 2022.
The keynote address will be delivered by Annie Tindley, Professor of British and Irish History at Newcastle University, and proposals relating to all aspects of Irish economic and social history, from medieval to modern, will be considered.
Proposals from doctoral and early career researchers are particularly welcome, and we are pleased to announce that the Economic and Social History Society of Ireland will once more be awarding a ‘new researchers prize’ for the best paper presented to the annual conference by a graduate student.
Details of previous winners can be found on the ESHI website and presenters wishing to be considered for the prize should indicate this clearly when submitting a proposal.
