New QUCEH Members
QUCEH welcomes Alexandra de Pleijt, Philip Fliers, Frank Kennedy and Robin Adams as new QUCEH Research Associates. Alexandra joins us from Oxford, and is a Lecturer in Economics. Philip joins us from Utrecht, Robin from Oxford and Frank from LSE; all three are Postdocforal Research Fellows. You can find out more about them here.
History Now is a history talk show presented by Barry Sheppard and produced by local Belfast television station Northern Visions Television. In each episode, Barry brings together a group of academic or professional historians to discuss a topic in Irish history. QUCEH members have featured in a number of episodes.
The Long Run Initiative
The Long Run Initiative is a not-for-profit forum co-run by members of QUCEH. The Initiative is founded on three precepts: (1) to demonstrate the practical value of historical expertise to contemporary decision makers; (2) to create dialogue between academics, businesses and government; and (3) to provide an independent and international perspective on the challenges facing business and society. Find out more here.
