OPW announces the launch of its annual research journal.

31 Oct 2023

The Office of Public Works is pleased to announce the launch of its annual research journal ‘Irish Heritage Studies. The annual research journal of the Office of Public Works’.

The journal will showcase original critical research rooted in the substantial portfolio of material culture in the care of or managed by the OPW: built heritage; historic, artistic, literary and scientific collections; the national and international histories associated with these places and objects; and its own long organisational history. Papers will contribute to a deeper understanding of this important collection of national heritage, and investigate new perspectives on aspects of its history. The journal is designed for a broad public, specialist and professional readership.

Published in association with Gandon Editions, submissions are welcomed on a rolling basis (deadline for volume one is 15 December 2023), and the first volume is due to be published in spring 2025.

Please go to the Call for papers for further details on the journal remit and specifications.
