New R.J. Hunter Digitial Fellowship09 September 2021
The Royal Irish Academy is delighted to announce the new R.J. Hunter Digital Fellowship scheme. The main purpose of this one-year post-doctoral Fellowship is to develop a prosopographical database of English and Scottish settlers in the Ulster Plantation (1609-1700).
The database will use the contemporary seventeenth-century surveys of the Plantation as a base and then add in information on individual settlers and families to be found in other primary and secondary sources including in R J Hunter’s published work as well as in his unpublished archive.
The Fellowship, which is made possible thanks to funding from Ms Laura Hunter Houghton, daughter of the late R.J. Hunter will be hosted by the Institute of Irish Studies, Queen’s University Belfast. Further details
