Research Themes

The Department of History at University of Galway is home to a dynamic research community made up of academic staff, postdoctoral fellows, and postgraduate students. We work on a range of topics from the medieval to the late modern period in Ireland, Britain, continental Europe, North America and the Global South. Researchers pursue their own passions, but collectively excel in four research areas, which are closely related to the Research Themes of the School of History and Philosophy and the Signature Research Areas of the College of Arts, Sciences and Celtic Studies:
