Book your place at our pre-modern Ireland symposium, 21–23 March
On 21–23 March this year, The National Archives will host Dominus Hibernie/Rex Hiberniae: pre-modern Ireland, 1200–1801. Over three days at this major, international symposium eminent historians will discuss their research on six centuries of Irish history.
During this period, institutions, policies and attitudes developed to enable the crown to tackle the challenges of governing Ireland and its inhabitants. The records which such processes generated are voluminous and afford rich, multi-faceted insights into the administration of pre-modern Ireland, its political and legal culture, its geography, environment, society, economy and trade.
Conference organiser Dr Neil Johnston, Early Modern Records Specialist at The National Archives, said:
‘In bringing together historians of medieval and early modern Ireland, this symposium aims to facilitate discussion of continuity and change across six centuries of Irish history by putting into sharper focus the collections with relevance to pre-modern Ireland at The National Archives. This is an opportunity not to be missed.’
The symposium will be opened by Jeff James, CEO and Keeper of The National Archives and Adrian O’Neill, Ambassador of Ireland to the United Kingdom with keynote addresses given by:
- Professor Robin Frame (Durham University)
- Professor Patricia Palmer (National University of Ireland, Maynooth)
- Professor David Hayton (Queen’s University Belfast)
Full conference and day tickets are available. Prices start at £30.
