Project Information

The 1916 Diary of Dorothy Stopford Price project was initiated in Spring 2013 by members of the Digital Scholarly Editing class at Trinity College Dublin under the direction of Professor Susan Schreibman. Members of the team were Eoin Foley and Sean McTiernan (enrolled in TCD’s  M.Phil in Digital Humanities and Culture), Trinity College Dublin PhD candidate Catherine Ann Cullen and University College Cork PhD candidate Seana Farrington (both registered in the Digital Arts and Humanities PhD programme).

The project was supervised by Professor Susan Schreibman, The Trinity Long Room Hub Associate Professor in Digital Humanities at Trinity College Dublin, now the Professor of Digital Humanities at the National University of Ireland Maynooth.

In the winter/spring 2014, the project was significantly modified by  Professor Schreibman and colleagues associated with the Letters of 1916 project: Karolina Badzmierowska, Roman Bleier, Emma Clarke, and Brian Hughes. Modifications included web redesign, re-encoding of the XML, and significant revision of the notes and website content in preparation for the project launch.

The diary of  Dorothy Stopford Price (MS 16,063) is part of the National Library of Ireland collection – Diary of Dorothy Stopford Price, Dublin, 1916 April 21 – May 4 by Price, Dorothy (Stopford), 1890-1954.
