Transformative figures and the challenge of archiving their work
October 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
A conversation with archivist Niamh Ní Charra, drawing from her experience working on two iconic Irish archives; The Gaelic League and the Mary Robinson collections at the University of Galway.
This will be a hybrid event limited to just 20 in-person attendees. It will take place in our new education room on the north mezzanine level of the Celtic Junction across the hall from the McKiernan Library. Librarian Brian Miller will facilitate the seminar. There is no charge to attend in person or online.
Niamh is a professional archivist and is the project manager and project archivist for the Conradh na Gaeilge (The Gaelic League) and Mary Robinson collections at the University of Galway. She is also the Communications and Campaigns officer for the Archives and Records Association, Ireland, and regularly gives presentations on her work in this field.
She is a founding member and archivist for the volunteer campaign group FairPlé established in 2018, which aims to achieve gender balance in the production, performance, promotion, and development of Irish traditional and folk music.
