VENUE: UCD Humanities Institute of Ireland, University College Dublin
This workshop focuses on the contribution to and role of the professional archivist in the Decade of Centenaries. The daylong session will explore what the professional archivist does and how their work impacts on national commemorative activities.
Since the 1970s UCD has pioneered professional education for archivists in Ireland. This one-day event will showcase the work of archivists, many of whom are UCD graduates, who curate the raw materials of commemoration in Irish archives.
Using a series of case studies, the workshop will evaluate the online and onsite strategies which can be used to promote archival materials of relevance to the centenaries and examine how archivists can strategically record their activities during the decade of commemoration.
