03 September 2018
Steven Ellis

During the fall semester, ICOG welcomes new visiting research fellows. The first to arrive is Steven Ellis, a historian from the National University of Ireland Galway. During his stay in Groningen, he will collaborate with professor of early modern history Raingard Esser in a research project on frontiers in Ireland.

State formation in the Leinster marches

Dr Ellis intends to complete the research and write an article on frontiers in Ireland which he has provisionally entitled, ‘State formation in the Leinster marches: the creation of the south Dublin military frontier’. He is also hoping to do a collaborative paper with Raingard Esser, professor of early modern history, on a conceptual approach to early modern border research; and he shall present a paper to the CHS seminar on Monday 10 September on ‘Ideological origins of the hard Brexit border:  frontiers and national identity in Tudor Ireland’.

Visiting research fellows programme

ICOG welcomes applications for visiting research fellowships from academics working in the fields of its five research centres. The duration of visits usually varies from a month to half a year. During this time, visiting research fellows are expected to work on their own research projects (ideally in collaboration with a scholar or an academic team from ICOG) and to participate in the events organised by ICOG.
