About this event

This workshop will seek to examine the common challenges and common opportunities facing historians and archivists. It will also examine various aspects of the relationship between both professions. Among other things, the workshop will examine how the creation of archives can create histories, how people understand (and misunderstand) the archive, questions surrounding access to archives, historians and archivists’ perceptions of each other (and the need to overcome misperceptions), and finally the possibilities for greater co-operation between both professions.

Speakers and participants in the workshop include Sarah-Anne Buckley (NUIG), Damien Burke (Irish Jesuit Archives), Catherine Cox (UCD), Noelle Dowling (Dublin Diocesan Archives) , Lindsey Earner-Byrne (UCC), Cecile Gordon (Irish Military Archives), Kieran Hoare (NUIG), Barry Houlihan (NUIG), Neil Johnston (TNA), John McCafferty (UCD), Virginia Teehan (Heritage Council), Ciarán Wallace (Beyond 2022 project, TCD).
