Launch of the ‘Great Famine Voices’ Project

The DH@TCD team is proud to welcome another great project in to the fold!

‘Great Famine Voices’ will crowdsource personal and family accounts of the famine and the resulting emigration from Ireland, creating a comprehensive resource on its impact on Irish society.

The project is led by Dr Danielle O’Donovan, Research Fellow at the Centre for Research in IT in Education at Trinity, and Dr Owen Conlan, Assistant Professor in Computer Science, Trinity. The project was launched at an event at the Irish Famine Museum and Archive at Strokestown Park House on Friday August 28th, 2015.
