Overview

It is the largest group of historians at any university on the island of Ireland. History has a number of collaborative research initiatives with the Institute of Irish Studies at Queen's and with other universities in Ireland, the UK and abroad, including Boston College, Vanderbilt and George Washington University.

With Queen’s being part of the AHRC Northern Bridge collaboration (with Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Teeside and Ulster Universities), there are opportunities for co-supervised doctoral work with staff at all three of these institutions.

The History programme is offered by Queen's University Belfast .

Research

Queen’s is one of the premier research centres globally for the study of Irish history and boasts a large and active team of researchers in this field, with interests ranging from the middle ages to the twentieth century.

We have particular in depth strength in the history of Irish religion, politics, gender relations, social history, and Ireland's relationships with Britain and the wider world, Irish-British relations, economic development and thought, political ideologies, and in the history of modern Ulster.

The Centre for Public History is a dynamic new development at Queen’s, one that involves historians with a variety of geographical and chronological interests. A number of history PhD candidates are engaged in public history related projects which involve internships and collaborations with bodies such as the BBC, Belfast City Council, Historic Royal Palaces and the Ulster Museum.
