Research Expertise

Description

My research has mostly focused on elites and elite education, something very much at the core of both of my books, Irish Elites (2013) and Catholics of Consequence (2014). My next book will be about power. I also occasionally publish on obscure novels of the 1890s, and have also become more and more interested in Public History since my time at TCD. Since 2014 I have been the President of the SSNCI - an interdisciplinary society dedicated to the study of nineteenth-century Ireland. In addition to this I have also been involved with a group of likeminded historians working together in the Transnational Ireland Network, and in a global research network called SPECTRESS, funded by the European Commission.
