Welcome to the website of the Newspaper and Periodical History Forum of Ireland (NPHFI).

The NPHFI exists to facilitate contact between researchers and writers in the field of newspaper, periodical, journalism and printing history, and to strengthen institutional links between third level teaching and research institutions, libraries and other organizations concerned with media history. It organizes an annual conference and provides a valuable forum for academics, researchers and journalists to meet in an informal environment to discuss and debate relevant issues. It serves as a valuable network for those interested in developing collaborative works and also provides a platform for emerging academics to present their work to the country’s leading media historians in a formal, but supportive environment.
