Doegen Records Web Project Seeks 2 Interns

The Doegen Records Web Project are offering 2 postgraduate internships for the translation from Irish into English of transcripts of the original dialect recordings (Connacht, Munster and Ulster Irish). Based in the Royal Irish Academy library, the Doegen Project is transferring 212 recordings of native Irish speech from each of the four provinces to the web. These recordings were made by Dr Wilhelm Doegen, Director of the Lautabteilung, Preussische Staatsbibliothek, Berlin, during the period 1928-31, under a Department of Education initiative, which was organised and administered by the Academy. The collection comprises versions of stories, songs, prayers and other miscellaneous items.

The RIA now invites applications for the fixed-term contract positions with the Doegen Web Project. Details and instructions for applying are available at:
