A 'Manly Study'? Irish Women Historians, 1868-1949 explores the lives, careers, and social and political activism of women historians in Ireland in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and addresses debates about gender and history, modern Irish historiography, and Irish women's history. It inserts Irish women into international studies of women historians, and recovers the contribution of women to the development of the Irish historical profession. As the first book-length study of Irish women historians, the book fills several gaps withing current scholarship on historiography.
NADIA SMITH is Adjunct Professor to the History Department at Boston College.
