Irish Central: Oral history archive celebrates 50 years of the Irish language in Boston. “The University of Massachusetts Boston’s Joseph P. Healey’s Library has arranged a special archive collection consisting of five interviews, conducted entirely as Gaeilge, which discusses the unique importance of the Irish language to the Irish diaspora over the past 50 years.”
While wandering around Twitter I heard about a new WordPress site — the Irish Diaspora Histories Network.
From the About page: “The histories of the Irish diaspora are varied and diverse, and span a multitude of geographical and chronological periods. As a result, the scholars researching them are often separated by historiography, methodology, and discipline base. This website, and the accompanying social media list, seeks to bring together researchers of Irish diaspora history by highlighting the range of work being doing across the world. It’s hoped that new conversations and connections can be made through the information held on this website.”
