Projects

I have developed a wide variety of online and Digital Humanities projects. Here are just a few of them:

Joyce Today

Launched in Spring 2017, the second project of the Digital Platform for Contemporary Irish Writing features adaptations of and resources for the work of James Joyce produced in the five year period 2012-2016, the year 2012 marking the end of copyright on the work of one of Ireland’s most famous writers. ‘Joyce Today’ makes available electronic links to recordings, reviews, interviews, and other relevant resources. The aim of the site is to illustrate the dynamic and diverse ways in which artists, creative practitioners, and academics continue to respond to his work.

The Art of Travel, 1500-1850

The Art of Travel, 1500-1850, is a database of European travel advice literature (Ars apodemica) from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. The project aims to recover and reconstruct the transnational genre of travel advice literature, exploring its intellectual and cultural contexts, and illustrating its lasting importance. We are a collaborative international project based at the Moore Institute of the National University of Ireland, Galway.

Corpus of The Gaelic Journal

Irisleabhar na Gaedhilge was founded by Aondacht na Gaedhilge and was later taken over by Conradh na Gaeilge. It was published on an almost monthly basis between 1882 and 1909. Among the contributors to it were Dubhghlas de hÍde, Pádraig Mac Piarais, An tAthair Peadar Ua Laoghaire, Úna Ní Fhaircheallaigh, An tAthair Eoghan Ó Gramhnaigh and Eoin Mac Néill. It included poetry, proverbs, songs, history, short stories, folklore, placenames, book reviews, material for learners of Irish, reports on the work of Conradh na Gaeilge and various wordlists. It was an important periodical for the Irish language revival community in the time before the foundation of the Irish Free State.

Contemporary Irish Writing

The inaugural project of the Digital Platform for Contemporary Irish Writing, titled ‘50 Irish Books’, features a selection of 50 titles, one per author, published in the five year period 2009-2013, and makes available electronic links to reviews of the book in question, public interviews with the author, and other relevant resources. The site was developed for University College Dublin as part of a project led by Chair of Anglo-Irish Literature and Drama, Professor Margaret Kelleher.

Visual Correspondence: Analysing Letters through Data Visualisation

"Visual Correspondence: Analysing Letters through Data Visualisation" is a website devoted to the study of historical letters. It uses data visualisation techniques to explore the correspondence of writers, artists, composers, scientists and politicians, mapping their social circles and tracing their activity over time.

Hidden Words

"Hidden Words from the Twentieth Century" is an online collection of Irish words once common in the spoken language, but often now lost.  The collection is derived from a series of previously unpublished manuscripts stored in University College Dublin and the Royal Irish Academy.  The project is an initiative of Foclóir na Nua-Ghaeilge (FNG).

OMNIA

With over 30 million objects, Europeana is a vast survey of Europe's many cultural treasures. This site attempts to offer an alternative approach to navigating this resource - by country, by provider, by map, by years or via the standard search; to augment the data with additional resources such as artist biographies and related content from other sites; and to visualise the data in new and exciting ways.  Download a flyer to find out more about the technologies involved.

Stories of migration as told through correspondence

These visualisations were developed for the AHRC funded project, Digitising experiences of migration, in an attempt to demonstrate the possibilities of data visualisation when studying large datasets. The project, led by Hilary Nesi (PI) and Emma Moreton (CI) at Coventry University, brought together academics from both Europe and America.
