Interpreting Objects, Texts & Contexts

The products of human creativity build a rich record of society and culture.  Such created works and artifacts open a window onto the particular times and contexts of human endeavour.  At Maynooth University we maintain unique archives and promote research on human cultures, experience, and creativity.

Our research advances understanding of the relationships between the creation of written, visual, or material sources - such as works of art, film, literature, music and popular culture as well as historical sources such as letters, manuscripts - and the contexts of their production.

Maynooth University is an ideal Host Institution for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship and this cluster is interested in finding potential applicants. Find a mentor below or contact IOTC@nuim.ie for more information.
