2014 marks the tenth anniversary of the founding of Sports History Ireland. To celebrate a decade of promoting cutting edge research in this thriving academic field, we are pleased to invite you to our 2014 Annual Conference which will take place at St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra, Dublin on 20 September 2014.
Papers are invited for the conference, which aims to provide a discussion forum for all those interested in the history of sport. The conference will be open-themed. Papers should be a maximum of twenty minutes in length with ten minutes for questions and discussion. Proposals for specialist panels are also strongly encouraged, particularly those which focus on the sporting heritage of Dublin or sport during the Great War.
Anyone who wishes to deliver a twenty minute paper – on any aspect of Irish, British or international sports history – should submit a maximum 300 word proposal to Dr Richard McElligott (UCD) on or before Friday 20 June 2014.
Please include a short biography (maximum 50 words) including institutional affiliation and email contact address. The conference promotes a positive, constructive academic approach to all presenters and, in this regard, SHI also strongly encourages postgraduates / graduate students to submit abstracts.
