Liam Kennedy is interested in long-run change in Irish society, from the 17th to the 20th centuries. These interests include secular trends in prices, wages, living standards and population change. In more recent years, he has focused on Catholic-Protestant relations on the island of Ireland, from the Plantation of Ulster in the early 1600s to the dawn of the 21st century. This work, which is being pursued in collaboration with Professor KA Miller of the University of Missouri-Columbia and Dr Brian Gurrin of the National University of Ireland, draws on local and regional demographic studies. There is a particular emphasis on the changing balance between Irish Catholics, Anglicans and Presbyterians at a detailed local level, while also observing the implications of these changes for communal and power relationships. Economic, social and political variables are seen to be important, but we also stress the role of latent demographic power in understanding the conflicts of religion and nationality in recent centuries.
