Thursday 26 November sees the Cork launch of DRI partner project Letters of 1916.
The Letters of 1916 project is the first public humanities project in Ireland. It is creating a crowd-sourced digital collection of letters written around the time of the Easter Rising (1 November 1915 – 31 October 1916).
The Cork launch will feature demo and DIY sessions, allowing attendees to observe and participate in the process of digitising and transcribing historical letters. There will also be a collection event, where members of the public can bring their own 1916 letters in to the team. There will be pop-up talks, a lesson plan session for second level teachers and an evening reception. It is free and open to the public. For more information, click here.
