The International Crime Fiction Research Group, based at the Institute for Collaborative Research in the Humanities in Queen’s University Belfast, was created in 2013.
It brings together scholars from disciplines such as literature, film studies and cultural history. Its principal aim is to organise a series of initiatives themed around issues relating to the international genres of crime fiction, in order to establish long-term collaborations with other UK and European scholars and Libraries.
It will involve crime authors and series editors, and other stakeholders in the circulation of crime fiction, such as publishers, critics, translators and specialised retailers.
It builds on a series of conferences held to date by the Ireland-based International Crime Genre Research Network, in partnership with Dr Kate Quinn (University of Galway) and Dr Marieke Krajenbrink (University of Limerick) in Galway (2005), Limerick (2007), Cork (2009) and Belfast (2011)
The Century Ireland project is an online historical newspaper that tells the story of the events of Irish life a century ago.
Century Ireland is published on a fortnightly basis, beginning in May 2013, and is the main online portal for the Irish decade of commemorations, 1912-23.
News reporting on life in Ireland 100 years ago is supported by a wealth of visual, archival and contextual material to facilitate an understanding of the complexities of Irish life in the year between 1912 and 1923.
Century Ireland is produced by a team of researchers at Boston College Ireland and the project is funded by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
Century Ireland is hosted by RTÉ and the site is complimented by their broadcast schedule and material from the RTÉ archives.
At the core of Century Ireland is a collaborative partnership between the major cultural and educational institutions in Ireland. By working so fruitfully together, the various partners are making a range of rarely (or never) seen material available that will bring the events of a century ago to life. Century Ireland was awarded an Eircom Spider award for best Irish Arts, Culture & Heritage website in 2013 and shortlisted for a prestigious Prix Europa, one of the biggest international prizes for public service television, radio and online production.
