Literary Dublin in the Digital Archive presented by the Digital Repository Of Ireland
October 13, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pmFree
The Digital Repository of Ireland is delighted to be running a one-day symposium ‘Literary Dublin in the Digital Archive’ sponsored by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature and Dublin City Council.
This event will bring together writers, geographers, historians and archivists to delve into our digital archives and to explore and build a landscape of literary Dublin that incorporates the letters, maps, stamps, photographs and other archival materials held in DRI and other digitally available sources. The event will explore three themes- what Dublin literary collections are held in digital archives, what work is being done to build digital literary archives and finally, how these sources are being used as inspiration and background text for fiction.
