Last Thursday and Friday we had a Digital Cultures Workshop at University College Cork. There were distinguished local and international speakers over the two days of the event, with a subject range from Sociology through Psychology, Music, Literatures and Geography. Most importantly, the new DAH PhD cohort met, and shared their ideas for the first time. The students projects ranged from Erasmus' epistolary connections to capturing performances. The dahphd.ie is live - and content is being added.
Last Wednesday Aigne was launched, after a long gestation. It is an international, interdisciplinary, postgraduate journal of the College of Arts Celtic Studies and Social Sciences at University College Cork, with the support of the Graduate School. It represents the best in collaboration, graduate education and publishing - with a sustainable URL within the UCC domain.
From many submissions, through a double-blind peer review process six are published, from the USA, Germany and Ireland. Through this process many PhD candidates within the CACSSS in the university have gained valuable experience of the peer review process and editorial skills. It is a huge case of 'WELL DONE' to all the team.
