Digital Encounters with the Past

IRC-supported researchers using digital technologies to visualize history



What are the ancient secrets of Ogham writing? How did we circulate news across early modern Europe? Why did nineteenth-century Dublin haunt its writers? Meet the digital humanities researchers using advanced technologies to answer these questions and pioneering new ways to encounter the past.

The Irish Research Council is hosting a free online panel event as part of the Dublin Festival of History 2021 that will showcase some of the most exciting digital humanities research in Ireland today. IRC-supported researchers will share insights on their latest projects and join in conversation on how digital technologies can bring history to life.
