This conference addresses the short and long term historical impact of disasters in the Irish and wider contexts - famine, fires/conflagrations, shipwrecks and other large-scale transport accidents, epidemics/pandemics, and natural calamities including floods, earthquakes and storms. The conference considers the immediate and long term social and economic impact of such events; contemporary official and legal responses; and the part played by disasters in shaping historical memory.
