Collecting Ireland’s Literary Present
How do we do we collect work and experiences of contemporary writers? Join Benedict Schlepper-Connolly from the recently established Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLI), to hear about the museum’s ambitious plans for digital programming and collecting. Since opening on Dublin’s St Stephen’s Green in 2019, MoLI’s digital team has been busy celebrating, documenting and archiving the work of Ireland’s contemporary writers – most notably through readings, interviews, and collaborative programming for RadioMoLI, a 24/7 digital radio station for Irish literature with a dedicated in-house studio.
