Description

In this talk, Dr Emilie Pine will consider the ways that digital approaches to archives can tell new stories and act as a belated form of witnessing. The lecture focuses on the University College Dublin project Industrial Memories, which digitally re-reads the 2009 Ryan Report on institutional child abuse in Ireland, using approaches such as text analytics and mobile apps to open up the archive. This document is one of the most important publications in the history of the Irish state. It is also one of the least read. Pine considers how digital approaches might change that.
