Urbi et Orbi: Apologia

Dear Readers (both loyal and disloyal!),


Firstly, please allow me to apologise to you.


I have been unfaithful! I have engaged with the Twitter machine (@constantg2222) and have neglected this site for some time no! And I won’t tell you all that it has ended, but I do feel that there is more room now for a parity of sorts.


I have also recently finished my PhD thesis, which means that my return to this site will be both more fulsome and prolonged than recent bursts (which coincided with finishing off chapters of same and papers!). My research looks at possible connections between PTSD and British ex-servicemen soldiering in the Empire after the Great War. I would expect to see  more than a few passing references to this also.


I would like to possibly undertake a prolonged research project, or series of blog essays exploring a particular sub genre of military/policing/organisational history, over the enxt few months, so please subscribers, if you have any interesting ideas, don’t be backwards about coming forward!


Thanks  so much for reading this and again thanks for bearing with me over the last few years. A return to normal programming has recommenced!


About eamonntgardiner

I am a PhD Student at the National University of Ireland, Galway. I am conducting research into links between wartime traumatic-neurosis and evidence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder amongst British First World War veterans serving as Auxiliary Policemen in Ireland during the Anglo-Irish War 1919-1921. I have previously conducted research into local Irish Volunteer/Old IRA units in Munster as well as British responses to popular insurgencies in areas they administered. I have previously published a book on the British Counterinsurgency responses to the IV/IRA conflict in Ireland, 1919-1921, entitled 'Dublin Castle and the Anglo-Irish War: Counter Insurgency and Conflict.' I have also published papers on various aspects of that war and also on other insurgencies. I write a regular blog on those and other related matters, which can be read at https://eamonntgardiner.wordpress.com/ My research interests include Feminism and De-Colonialisation/Post-Colonialism, Insurgency, Police and Military Histories, Institutional Histories. Subaltern Studies, International History of the 20th Century, Modern Irish History, Historiography, History of Conflict, Peace Keeping/Enforcement/Protectorates, Spheres of Influence, Hegemonic Theories, Old and New Terrorism.
