The Gender History Project

Research in progress

In 2002, the Gender Equality Unit of the Department of Education and Science awarded research funding to the Centre for Gender and Women's Studies (TCD), and the Education Department, UCD, to examine gender perspectives in the delivery and assessment of the junior cycle history curriculum. This website will provide information relating to the research project, and with relevant sites. The website will also provide information relating to the teaching of an inclusive history curriculum that values the experiences of both men and women as actors in the historical narrative.

The research project is under the joint direction of:
