Subject: MACMORRIS Patricia Palmer (Maynooth University) has been named an Advanced Laureate (2019) by the Irish Research Council. The award comes with a four-year grant of €1,000,000. Palmer is collaborating with David J. Baker (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and Willy Maley (University of Glasgow) to develop MACMORRIS -- Mapping Actors and Contexts: Modeling Research in Renaissance Ireland in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century. This web application, says Palmer, will "allow us to tap into a diverse, multilingual world that reminds us just how rich and complex the wellsprings of Irish culture are." MACMORRIS will identify, geo-locate, and provide biographical and bibliographical information on all cultural actors (for whom a record exists) working in Irish, English, and other languages from 1541 to 1691; it will also visualize the social networks among them. Its textual offerings will include as yet untranslated bardic poetry. The aim of this project is to represent Ireland's competing, and sometimes intersecting, languages and literary traditions in a period of conflict and flux. MACMORRIS's dataset, which will be curated, searchable, and open-access, will be assembled jointly at UNC and Maynooth University. MACMORRIS's home institution will be Maynooth University. _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
