Reconstructing the life and dinnseanchas of local communities in the past fulfils a real need in people who identify with or belong to that locality.
Though long regarded primarily as the territory of the antiquarian and the leisured scholar, local history is moving in from the margins of university teaching and scholarship and there is a growing awareness that its practice can benefit from the broader paradigms and the research methods used in history and the human sciences.
The aim of the Local History course at University of Limerick is to systematically and coherently develop a range of historical research skills and thereby, further the historical understanding of local and regional communities and societies.
The course should be of interest to primary and secondary teachers, librarians especially those working in local studies and reference department, archivists, staff in heritage centres, interpretative centres and museums.
