The MACMORRIS project (Mapping Actors and Communities: A Model of Research in Renaissance Ireland in the 16th and 17th Centuries) is a four-year digital-humanities project funded by the Irish Research Council that seeks to map the full range of cultural activity in Ireland, across languages and ethnic groups, from roughly 1541 to 1691. It aims to provide an inclusive account of creative, scholarly, and intellectual activity in a period of conflict, change and innovation which transformed Ireland. In doing so, it will extend, unify and redefine our understanding of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Ireland, its place in the European Renaissance, and in the wider global networks of an emerging modernity.

The project has two objectives. First, it will build a dataset of every figure from or living in or closely associated with Ireland in this period. Secondly, it will use the province of Munster as a case study and, using the biographical and bibliographical data gleaned from the dataset, it will create an interactive map to identify, geo-locate, and provide biographical and bibliographical information for the totality of cultural producers working in Irish, English, and other languages in Munster between 1569 and 1607.
