The UCD History Society may be ninety-nine years of age, but it is
far from frail, still going strong. It is the members who make
this society, and the committee are highly concerned with ensuring
our activities work for the membership. To this end, we aim to
simultaneously encourage social interaction and historical
scholarship by organising a series of frequent events, including a
term-time lecture series, seasonal social gatherings, which
include amongst other things, table quizzes and film screenings,
and an annual trip abroad to visit sites and locations that have
played key roles in world history.
The society also publishes a journal showcasing new research,
including that of postgraduate students from the UCD School of
History and Archives. Furthermore, to support the scholarly and
educational activities of its members, the society provides online
resources and information for students of history, both
undergraduate and postgraduate. To join the UCD History Society
for the academic year only costs two euro, while the benefits are
vast! Should you wish to join, just attend one of our events and
you will be accommodated and indoctrinated over a glass of wine!
We look forward to meeting you!
