Nowlan Digitisation Grants awarded30 May 2023
The RIA is delighted to confirm the awarding of four grants under the Nowlan Digitisation scheme for 2023.
The Nowlan Digitisation, which is funded by a generous bequest from Kevin B. Nowlan aims to expand the range of digitised historical sources available through open and free access to researchers, for private study or education purposes.
This year the scheme was open to applications from researchers in the field of Irish History and the four projects, which must make their their digital outputs and metadata available to the Royal Irish Academy for inclusion in the Digital Repository of Ireland cover diverse areas in terms of both topic and era.
Margaret Brehony for example will work on developing a digital archive of the Irish in Cuba and Charles Ivar McGrath will digitise the indexes of select British Army monthly returns in Ireland during the late nineteenth century.
