Elspeth Payne

Elspeth is an Irish Research Council funded doctoral candidate in the Department of History, Trinity College Dublin where she previously held the R. B. McDowell Fellowship.

Her main research looks at the presentation of Anglo-Irish connections in British newspapers to explore the imagined reality of events spanning 1922-1939.

She is particularly interested in: the meaning and development of media representations; the production and consumption of press discourses, and using contemporary understandings to interrogate the traditional, retrospective narratives of academic and public histories.
