OUR THEME FOR 2021-2022


Scholars, welcome to the years 2021-2022!

This academic year, we're thrilled to introduce our new yearly theme: Community-Driven Curation in the Digital Arts and Humanities. We will bridge disciplinary boundaries to foreground computational and curatorial techniques that merge in ways to lift the otherwise unknown or untold through an investigation of academic, artistic, and archival perspectives.

  • Through mapping, oral histories, and digital storytelling, we'll look at how communities across space and time.

As an important kind of digital public involvement, we will feature participatory art, activist art, and other forms of dialogical arts and humanities projects. Finally, and most significantly, we will campaign for community-based and community-inspired digital arts and humanities to include inclusive and ethical data curation techniques. We hope to meet you at one of our events or courses throughout the year, whether online or in person. We're still working on updating our Fall 2021 event listings, but stay tuned to our events page for more information at the start of the year. We'll talk again shortly!

An Irish Studies Digital Journal

In Ireland, the Digital Humanities are Taking Off “This isn't some ethereal Lyceum of Digital Humanities. Money, students, funding agencies, huge schools, small schools, programs, curricula, old guards, new guards, gatekeepers, and status are all part of the picture. It could be more than these things, but it can't be anything else. Abstract Tracing the creation of academic disciplines in a national setting is a worthwhile endeavor since it goes beyond defining a topic to evaluating its evolution in a more specific cultural context.

This is especially true in the Digital Humanities, where infrastructure requirements are such that the field's growth is closely linked to social and economic developments.around for more than two decades, has a searchable text base of 16 million words, which includes 1,343 contemporary and historical texts from a variety of fields in literature and the arts. The project is still one of Ireland's most important textual resources for scholarship.

The Irish Census Online Project (2009)

serves as a model for the online release of primary documents from Ireland.

Caitriona Crowe, Head of Special Projects at the National Archives of Ireland, is in charge of the project, which is dedicated to being a free and open resource created to international standards without the use of proprietary software.

The Irish Census Online Project (2009)

serves as a model for the online release of primary documents from Ireland.

As an accessible resource for both researchers and the general public, the Census Project exemplifies those ideals that are fundamental to the Humanities and social sciences for the preservation and analysis of culture, memory, and society. Furthermore, the Project's partners are inherently collaborative: national colleagues in Ireland, particularly across cultural heritage institutions; local partners, such as newspapers and museums; and even international colleagues in Canada, where Library and Archives Canada has made their materials available.

Because of this dedication,

the census continues to generate and answer research issues for Irish Studies in a way that private commercial resources cannot.
