Professor Nicholas Canny Honoured at Annual Conference of the Renaissance Society of America:

Three panels to honour the contribution that former chair of History at NUIG, Professor Nicholas Canny, has made to the study of early modern Irish history featured in the programme of the RSA annual conference this year.  Paying tribute to the impact that Professor Canny has had in the fields of Irish and Atlantic historiography, nine presenters underscored how his seminal publications continue to bring into focus a broader perspective on colonial identities and interactions in the early modern world. 

Pictured with Professor Canny (centre) are panel organizers, Professor Sarah Covington (Queen’s College, CUNY) and Associate Professor Brendan Kane (University of Connecticut), Professor David Armitage (Chair of the Dept. of History, Harvard University), and Dr. Alison Forrestal (Head of History, NUIG).
