Irish Centre for Australian Studies
The Irish Centre for Australian Studies has been established to promote a richer understanding in Ireland of Australia's environment, history and society and to develop greater links between Australian and Irish academics.
To fulfill its aims the Centre organises seminars and cultural events given by visiting Australians, as well as by Irish people working in the field of Australian studies.
The Irish Environmental History Network
The Irish Environmental History Network provides a point of contact for researchers working on areas and themes relevant to Irish environmental history.
Our definition of environmental history is extremely broad, and encompasses any discipline employing any method (e.g. scientific, archaeological, historic, literary) that examines how humanity has studied, perceived, managed and influenced the natural environment, and been influenced in return by the environment, in any period of the past.
