Cydney Thompson is a first year PhD student in History and Digital Humanities at Trinity College Dublin. Her interdisciplinary research focuses on digitised content from Cultural Heritage Institutions and how they are used and reused in contemporary digital culture and utilizes both Public History and Digital Humanities practices. As DH@TCD POstgraduate research representative, Cydney hopes to facilitate conversations and build connections across departments to highlight the wide scope of applications for Digital Humanities methodologies.
We look forward to working with both Louise and Cydney to promote engagement with DH@TCD in the wider TCD community and beyond.
