Prof Tiziana Margaria and Alexander Schieweck (University of Limerick, Lero – The Irish Software Research Centre, Confirm – Smart Manufacturing, Ireland) were speakers at the DBDIrl Hackathon that the IRC funded project (Death and Burial Data: Ireland 1864 – 1922) organized in the Glucksman Library, at the University of Limerick.



The DBDIrl project aims to apply novel computer science technologies to the Digital Humanities, in particular to historical civil registration death data in order to create new knowledge about Irish history. The 40 participants from across Ireland included Master students of History, post-doctoral fellows and lecturers.

In the applied part of the course, they introduced the new web application created with DIME, an Integrated Modelling Environment for low-code application development. The hackathon consisted in a cooperative project: digitalisation in small groups of subsets of the original Irish GRO records. By placing the history of individuals and their life events at the core of this research, the full IT platform will offer new ways of understanding and analysing death data, death causes, and microstories of the Irish heritage.
