Seanchas: The Global Gaelic Jukebox is a new collaborative research project that aims to facilitate access to ethnographic Irish and Scottish Gaelic sound and film recordings, held internationally at a variety of archives and institutions. The project aims to provide a new online directory of Gaelic recordings, particularly those pertaining to the folklore and ethnology of Gaelic communities in Scotland, Ireland and elsewhere.
The Seanchas project is directed by Dr Sìm Innes, Lecturer in Celtic and Gaelic at the University of Glasgow and Dr Barbara Hillers, Lecturer in Irish Folklore at University College Dublin. The project receives funding from Colmcille, a partnership between Bòrd na Gàidhlig and Foras na Gaeilge. It also receives further funding from the University of Glasgow.
If you would like more information, or indeed to let us know of little-known collections of Gaelic or Irish or Manx Gaelic sound recordings to be included in this directory, then please contact Dr Sìm Innes at Sim.Innes@glasgow.ac.uk or Dr Barbara Hillers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
