The Arts and Humanities Institute supports cross-disciplinary research and innovation across the arts and humanities, from literatures to languages, music, history and performance. It explores new ways to organize, investigate and represent existing corpora, where analogue meets digital and traditional research meets the currently available digital tools, methods and services. 

Research in the Arts and Humanities Institute is focused on four main areas:

  1. analysis of early, middle and modern Irish manuscript and literary forms, 
  2. literary articulations of cultural conflicts in the early modern world
  3. cultural representations of motherhood and gender in literature, film and digital media 
  4. digital technologies in the humanities, including digital repositories and archives, different types of information (i.e. biographical, geographical etc.) representation and visualisations; digital technologies and creative expressions
