As it's name tell you, the association is for professional historians (those with a PhD or those who have made a significant contribution to historical studies) and graduate historians (those enrolled in a PhD programme). Membership is open to those who have trained or are working in Ireland as well as international historians and scholars with an expertise or interest in historical studies.
Among the benefits of membership are these:
- Affiliation to an association of professional historians
- Access to and advertisement through a personal and updateable profile page hosted on the IAPH website
- Access to professional development training subsidised by the association
- Access to IAPH networking events.
The official launch of the association and its website, www.iaph.ie, will take place place at Academy House, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 next Tuesday at 6pm. Prospective members can join on the night (cash only) or through the website (click logo).
