The MACMORRIS Project (Mapping Actors and Communities: A Model of Research in Renaissance Ireland in the 16th and 17th Centuries) is a four-year digital-humanities project funded by the Irish Research Council. It seeks to map the full range of cultural activity in Ireland, across languages and ethnic groups, from roughly 1541 to 1691.We are looking to recruit a well-qualified applicant interested in undertaking a research degree at PhD level. To that end, we are inviting applications from candidates interested in undertaking a focused case study that will produce a more granular sense of the period and, thereby, help to redefine it.
