Reappraisals in Irish History

The series offers new insights into Irish history, society and culture from 1750. Recognising the many methodologies that make up historical research, titles present innovative and interdisciplinary work that is conceptual and interpretative, and seeks to expand and challenge the common understandings of the Irish past. The objective of the series is to showcase new and exciting scholarship on subjects such as the history of gender, power, class, the body, landscape, memory, and social and cultural change. It also reflects the diversity of Irish historical writing, since it includes titles that are empirically-sophisticated together with conceptually-driven synoptic studies from early career and established scholars. What makes this series especially appealing is that each author draws on methods and concepts from across traditional disciplinary boundaries, yet at the same time offers a fresh and unique interpretation of the topic and locates these arguments in a broader context.
