Welcome to the Accounts of the Conflict blog. The team working on the project will be posting regular updates about their work here, alongside thoughts on issues of relevance to the collection, archiving and dissemination of personal accounts of the conflict in and about Northern Ireland. We are a team with varied interests and expertise including peace studies and peace building, historical research, web design, digital archiving, digital media, ICT in education and many more areas.
We hope you enjoy following us on our journey as we build a digital archive and website, as well as gather all the information that will be added to them. We’re sure to face many challenges and meet lots of opportunities in the coming months. Hopefully our experiences and musings on the issues we face will be of benefit to those working on similar projects or those with an interest in what we’re doing.
During 2014 we will be posting entries about archiving, dealing with the past, oral history, education, digital media, ethics, outreach, research, and design. We’ll be writing about some of the major events we will host in 2014, like our seminar series, international advisor visits, and our international conference in November. We’ll also write about anything else that links to what Accounts of the Conflict is trying to achieve, and we welcome your contributions in the comments section.
Be sure to follow us and let others know about our blog. Check back soon for more posts from the team.
