AHRC Funding for Irish Song project at Queen's University Belfast

The AHRC has just awarded the School of English at Queen’s University, Belfast, funding for a three-year project entitled ‘An Historical Typology of Irish Song: Transmission, Performance and Cultural Memory’. Its aim is to investigate the historical development of song in Ireland from the earliest evidence to the eighteenth century in its regional, insular, and international European contexts, and including especially its common heritage with Gaelic-speaking Scotland and the Isle of Man.

Medieval Song Network Update, January 2011

Since our first workshop in September 2010, various projects have been underway. The new website has been installed and is now open for members to register and add content. We hope that members of the Network will use this site as a way of communicating and sharing information about song, and that it will gradually build up into a very useful resource. Our song bibliography has been technologically transformed by Ben Albritton and Emma Gorst, using the bibliographical tool Zotero, which captures bibliographical information for references.
