Publication Digitisation Project

In a very exciting development, we are digitising our back catalogue for FREE, in collaboration with the Library of Trinity College Dublin, the Digital Repository of Ireland, and the original publishers Irish Academic Press (IAP) and Four Courts Press, as well as our editors and contributors. 250+ original essays in 16 vols #SSNCI-OA!!

Our first ever volume Chris Morash and Richard Hayes (eds), Fearful Realities: New Perspectives on the Famine (Irish Academic Press, 1996) is available at:

This collection contains some classic essays on the Great Irish Famine, and still raises very relevant questions and challenges for scholars of nineteenth-century Ireland and beyond. It was also the beginning of the our ongoing attempts to foster first-class interdisciplinary scholarship, and the editors display a justified enthusiasm about this excellent volume!
