Congratulations to Professor Diane Urquhart on her election as President of the Women's History Association of Ireland (WHAI).
Diane Urquhart, chair of Gender History in the School for History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics has been elected President of the Women's History Association of Ireland (WHAI).
Founded in 1989, the WHAI aims to promote research into the history of women in Ireland, to bring together scholars in Irish women’s history, to recognise excellence in research and to promote public engagement with women’s history in an Irish context.
On her presidency, Diane said,
'I am delighted and honoured to be elected President of the WHAI. I gave my first academic paper under the auspices of the WHAI and look forward to giving many more emerging scholars in the field the opportunity to do the same. The association also support scholars at all stages of their career and in all kinds of institutions (academic and cultural) in addition to independent scholars which is especially important at this challenging time.'
