UCD Centre for the History of the Media
The UCD Centre for the History of the Media offers a multidisciplinary forum for scholars from across the University and beyond to debate and discuss the history and development of the media. It is concerned with all forms of media from the middle ages to the present day, and encourages both broad contextual thinking and comparative investigation.
The Centre's primary focus is on research. It runs regular international conferences. Since 2009, it has worked in collaboration Palgrave Macmillan on a monograph series, Palgrave Studies in the History of the Media. It also hosts research projects, including the Iberian Book Project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. In addition to its research function, the Centre also runs a successful MA programme based in the School of History but drawing on expertise from across the University.
