College Historical Society (the Hist)

The Hist is the world’s oldest student society and has been both a forum for discourse and a cornerstone of college life since 1770. Continuing the legacy of past members such as Wolfe Tone, Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde, the Hist attracts a variety of prominent guest speakers including, in recent years, Noam Chomsky, Desmond Tutu, Margrethe Vestager and Margaret Atwood. Hist members and public figures alike come together at our Wednesday night chamber debates, where students can make their voice heard on current issues from climate justice to the future of feminism, and each week we hold a variety of events from panel discussions to debating workshops to coffee mornings. Join the conversation by signing up to the Hist today! Membership is €6 for 4 years.www.thehist.com;
