History Studies: University of Limerick History Society Journal Vol (1)
University of Limerick History Society
The study of history is a well established discipline. For over sixty years teachers and students of history have been served by Irish Historical Studies which has set the standard for most professional writing of history in Ireland. In recent years historians have opted to answer new needs by publishing new publications such as the Irish Economic and Social History Journal and History Ireland. Irish universities too, have a well earned reputation in fostering historical analysis and scholarship. The University of Limerick History Society, established in 1997, devoted itself to promoting the study of history within the University. With the active support of Dr. Bernadette Whelan and the history faculty the Society grew to become one of the most active groups on campus. At its foundation, members of the History Society adopted the idea of producing a journal dedicated to publishing both undergraduate and postgraduate work. In conjunction with this. members of the Society thought it appropriate to publish the papers presented at their meetings. This first volume of History Studies contains papers presented to the History Society, including those delivered as part of the Holocaust Forum which took place in November-December 1997. With the support of the history faculty and the financial support of generous benefactors within the University, the History Society is proud to publish this journal and hope that it brings enjoyment to the reader.
