If you have a Facebook account, and you haven’t already come across the Eighteenth-Century Ireland Society Facebook page, then make sure to visit and ‘Like’ the page, which currently has a small but select following of 75. The page publishes the posts from the ECIS Blog, as well as items from the media, and also shares posts from other groups with related scholarly and cultural interests. Facebook can be a great networking medium, as the fact that posts can easily be shared means that they can reach a wider audience. To give a recent example, Suzanne Forbes’s blog post on Richard Newton’s etching, “The Progress of an Irishman” was seen by over 600 people. Anyone who wants to can post on the Facebook page, so do come and visit us and help to share ideas, events, publications and news about eighteenth-century Ireland.

The Eighteenth-Century Ireland Society is on Twitter now too! Lisa and I recently set up the account and you can follow @ECI_Society for updates from the Blog and News & Events pages.

Or, if you don’t feel sociable, you can sign up to receive updates from the Blog and News & Events pages by email (enter your address in the ‘Subscribe’ form located above-right).
