The expertise and publications of History staff have shaped understanding of the past and public debate on a wide range of topics. We have been particularly active in engaging recently with the ‘Decade of Centenaries’ and First World War commemorations in Ireland and Britain, with the public representation of the past more generally in museums and heritage bodies in Northern Ireland and beyond, and in addressing historical topics including the role of religion in society, women’s struggles for equality, and race relations.
Our staff have wide-ranging expertise and interests that have shaped political debate and popular understandings of the past. Recent research projects have included work on women in nineteenth century America, war and the supernatural in early-modern Europe, popular music in early-modern England and the global history of the Irish revolution.
