What is Transnational Ireland?

Transnational Ireland is an international research network concerned with exploring the history of modern Ireland using a transnational approach. Each participant has specific research interests in political, social and cultural history, yet all are committed to using a transnational methodology. The aim is to investigate the challenges and benefits of transnational methodologies and locate the Irish experience within broader international and global contexts. The network has held a number of meetings to date, including discussion-based workshops on the theory and practice of doing transnational history in an Irish context, a very successful postgraduate workshop on research issues related to transnational history, and an event focussed on teaching transnational history. On this website you will find further details of core network members, events, publications, contact details and a short bibliography for those interested in reading more about transnational Ireland.
