Mill Street Belfast 1911 (Belfast City Council)

During the nineteenth century Belfast enjoyed spectacular economic growth, emerging as one of the United Kingdom’s major industrial centres.  Across the same period it moved from being the capital of Irish radicalism to a new status as a stronghold of Protestant resistance to Irish nationalism and as the scene of recurrent sectarian and political violence.

The module will explore the background to these transformations, and the connections between them.

Students from Family, Gender, and Household collecting data at Friar's Bush, Belfast

This module focuses on the Irish family and the Irish household in the nineteenth century.  Topics explored include courtship, marriage, reproduction, childhood, consumerisum, and emigration.  We also look at crimes relating to the family such as abduction, domestic abuse, and infanticide. 

 


Students from Family, Gender, and Household collecting data at Friar's Bush, Belfast

This module encompasses and explores the roles of the father, mother, children, relatives, and ‘hired help’ in the household.  We consider experiences of family life for different classes in Ireland and trace developments and changing attitudes over the century.

Very little research has been conducted in Ireland on many of the topics that we explore as part of this module.  A significant emphasis is thus placed on the analysis of relevant (and fascinating!) primary source material.
