Annual Conference

The 2022 Annual Conference of the Eighteenth-Century Ireland Society/An Cumann Éire san Ochtú Céad Déag is scheduled to take place as an in-person event in University College Cork, 17-18 June.

We will be guided by public health requirements and by UCC institutional policies on Covid-19, and we may therefore need to adapt the format closer to the conference date.
