Irish Environmental History Network
Welcome to the home of the Irish Environmental History Network (IEHN) , hosted by the Trinity Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin. The Network is a collection of individuals from institutions in Ireland and beyond, interested or engaged in research relating to the concerns of Irish environmental history. This research employs a broad array of methods and sources and focuses on how humanity has perceived and interacted with the global and Irish environment in any past era. The primary goal of the Network is to act as a contact point for researchers in diverse disciplines focusing on the different aspects of Irish environmental history. More information about the Network and its remit can be found here. On this website you will find simple research profiles of members of the Network, a growing collection of links to relevant websites and resources, reviews and short articles highlighting the work of members, and news of events of interest.

23 July 2010: Irish Environmental History Network Video
At a meeting held in Trinity College, Dublin, October 2009, to discuss the establishment of the IEHN, the opportunity was taken to make a short film of some of the attendees discussing their views on the potential of the IEHN and the directions it might take in immediate future and longer term. We thank the brave participants who agreed to be filmed: Prof. Poul Holm and Dr. Juliana Adelman of Trinity College, Dublin, Prof. Chris Smout of the University of St. Andrews, and Prof. Richard Oram of the University of Stirling. The film can be viewed on Youtube, here. Our thanks to Dr. Cecilia Mcallister for her work on filming and production.
