dc.description.abstract As on previous occasions, it gives me great pleasure to write the Foreword to this volume of History Studies, now in its seventeenth year. History Studies is a unique achievement of UL’s Student History Society; it also reflects the talent of the island of Ireland’s (and beyond) talent among its emerging scholars. Each volume goes through a rigorous peer review and the result is a showcase of the very best of history writing in our universities today. This year sees a return to diversity in the range of topics (last year was themed to coincide with the 1916 Rising). The eight contributions by undergraduates and graduates take us from eighteenth-century Ireland to late twentieth-century Peru, with stops in Belfast, the American Deep South, the former West Germany, and twentieth-century Ireland. There is something in the present volume for every interested reader. The volume opens with a wonderful essay by Lesley Donaldson from Queen’s University Belfast (and the only female among the contributors to this volume) on the attempt to initiate a slum clearance of the oldest central streets of Belfast in the mid-nineteenth century.
