Ulster Poetry in the Digital Age: Creativity, Innovation and Professional Practice
Dr Kathryn White and Dr Frank Ferguson
TEACHING AND LEARNING
“Employing digital technology can really benefit students and scholars, especially when they’re not getting too caught up with a particular gizmo as such, using it just to use it. Instead, it’s a question of how technology can both aid in traditional modes of scholarship/study and create new ways of approaching it.” Dr. Trevor Hoag, Assistant Professor of English and a member of the CNU Digital Humanities Task Force

An’ gies a cheap, safe recipe, they try
To quat braid Scotch, a task that foils their art;
For while they join his converse, vain though shy,
They monie a lang learn’d word misca’ an’ misapply.
(The Irish Cottier’s Death and Burial. James Orr)
