Join the DRI to explore questions around the long-term preservation of at-risk culturally significant digital materials in a lively webinar.

About this Event

In 2018, Ireland voted to repeal the eighth amendment to its constitution, paving the way for the legalisation of abortion in certain circumstances. The ‘yes’ vote was the result of a long grassroots campaign in the approach to the referendum. Can you remember the campaign materials that you saw in the months and weeks leading up to the referendum?

  • What part did social media play in this campaign?
  • Why are the materials that were created and circulated online now at dire risk of being lost?
  • What can be done to ensure that they survive in the long term, to be available to researchers and the public in the future?

Join the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) to explore these questions and more in a lively webinar featuring expert speakers involved with the Wellcome Trust funded DRI project ‘Digital Preservation of Reproductive Health Resources: Archiving the 8th’.
