Course summary

History is home to the Centre for the History of Medicine in Ireland (CHOMI) that has won several competitive research awards and has a thriving and growing postgraduate community. The University welcomes applicants interested in researching Early Modern and Modern Irish history, Modern British history, European history, Mediterranean history, Russian and Soviet history, Social history, Medical humanities, Social history of medicine, Labour history, Diaspora and migration, Imperialism and decolonisation.

History seeks to provide its PhD Researchers with the best possible facilities for their work. Postgraduate rooms are available on all campuses, with computer access including email and Internet. The University has a range of research materials. These include the files of major newspapers, such as the Times, New York Times, Irish Times, Guardian and some local papers. There is a good collection of the British cabinet papers and conclusions for the period 1916-1945 and other British official papers, as well as the personal library of Sir James Headlam Morley, historical adviser to the British delegation at the Paris Peace Conference. The library has one of the most extensive collections of microfilms of American material in Britain and Ireland. It is particularly strong on the history of African- Americans, including slavery and Civil Rights and on the history of radicalism, both right and left-wing.

History staff and postgraduates work closely with the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, the Linen Hall Library, Derry Central Library, and the Centre for Migration Studies at the Ulster-American Folk Park, all of which have extensive holdings. As well as Irish materials, the Public Record Office in Belfast has impressive manuscript collections of imperial and diplomatic figures. The library has extensive online holdings of journals and archives.
