One of UCD’s oldest societies, in existence for almost 100 years. Closely linked to the UCD School of History and Archives, the Society organises many events, including a term-time lecture series, social gatherings and an annual trip abroad. Throughout the academic year, the society hosts lectures for its members on a range of topics. Speakers will include academics from UCD, as well as guests from other universities and institutions. These talks generally take place in K114 in the Newman Building, and are followed, without fail, by wine receptions next door in K115. In addition to our lecture series, the society also organises a number of excursions, including a bar-crawl, on which members visit historically significant pubs in Dublin, and an annual, subsidised trip overseas that affords one an opportunity to visit and experience some key historical sites from Europe's past!
