Annual Conference

Tudor & Stuart Ireland organises a major two-day interdisciplinary conference in August each year, which provides opportunities for established academics, early stage and independent researchers, as well as postgraduates to present their research on Ireland or the Irish abroad during the Tudor & Stuart periods. Conferences also provide opportunities to network with researchers from a variety of disciplines and institutions, and feature plenary addresses by distinguished scholars.

The Tudor & Stuart Ireland Interdisciplinary Conferences began in University College Dublin in 2011.  In 2014 the conference series broadened its horizons through a commitment to creating a conference series that would move to new institutions periodically to expand networks of scholars.  In 2014 and 2015 the conference was held at Maynooth University, and in 2016 the conference was held at the National University of Ireland, Galway, where it will return for 2017. The 2017 conference is organised by Evan Bourke (English, NUI Galway), Raina Howe, (History, NUI Galway), Ioanna Kyvernitou (English, NUI Galway), Matt McGinty (History, NUI Galway).


Advisory Committee

The Tudor & Stuart Ireland Advisory Committee oversees the general operation of the conference series, manages digital dissemination of conference proceedings, website and social media outlets, and provides support to the organisers of the annual conference. It also develops and implements strategic goals to ensure the longevity of the conference series.

The committee welcomes proposals for future collaboration from individuals, societies, and institutions in Ireland and beyond.  The committee can be contacted by emailing the secretary, Dr Neil Johnston, at info@tudorstuartireland.com.
