On January 6th, to mark the 100th anniversary of Dubliners’ publication, The Humanities Institute, University College Dublin released an application that allows users to experience Joyce’s “The Dead” in several new ways.  The app includes an audio recording of actor Barry McGovern reading the story.   In addition, the app features podcasts from Catriona Crowe, Mary Daly, Anne Fogarty, and Gerardine Meaney and period images and architectural drawings that provide context for the historical and artistic climate in which the story takes place and was written.  Finally, the app includes a video recording of a performance of “The Lass of Augrhim” filmed in the Usher’s Island house.  The app is available in Apple and Android app stores.  For more information on the project and links to the app stores, click here.
