This is the blog for an Omeka collection and project managed by Dr James L. Smith, a postdoctoral fellow in the School of English and Digital Humanities at University College Cork.

The project is expanding, and will result in a series of articles making use of Digital Derg and a monograph project.

For the project publications – and others – see here.

This collection is designed to be explored in whatever manner the user sees fit: this is the goal of the deep map.

You can browse the collection items, search by tag or keyword, or navigate using the map. The collection will continue to grow, and a stable release in tabular data form will be available in 2020 via Github.

In 2020, Digital Derg should be seen as a draft. It has been released in the interest of open scholarship and open research. It will continue to be updated, refined, corrected and adjusted as it grows. By the end of the process, the final deep map will be 1000-1200 items in size.
