'People, places and memory' is an interdisciplinary conference hosted by the School of Geography and Archaeology, NUI, Galway and supported by the Irish Post-Medieval Archaeology Group. It will present cutting-edge research by post-graduate students on early modern Ireland, c. 1550 - 1800, and bring together graduate researchers from Ireland and abroad to discuss and debate various topical themes. The programme for the day comprises fourteen speakers from the disciplines of archaeology, history, geography, architectural history and place-name studies.
