Bloggers / Blagálaithe

This blog was the brainchild of Dr Kelly Coate (CELT), who at the time was Vice Dean (Graduate Studies) in the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Celtic Studies, NUIG. Two College of Arts PhD students, Chanté Mouton Kinyon and Eilís Ní Dhúill, picked up on the idea and ran with it…or perhaps walked would be a better description of what happened. In fact the project got off to a good start, but although Kelly had great vision and offered a lot of support and encouragement, other concerns like teaching duties and family matters meant that Thesis Talk, like a lot of projects, suffered a dormant period. Then, in 2012 when NUIG announced the EXPLORE project, it was decided to give the blog another go. When Kelly moved away to sunnier climes, Dr Sharon Flynn (CELT) took the baton and has been a great support. This time, I am glad to report, things have taken a more steady turn and we are progressing slowly but positively. A number of people have become involved and are now well established bloggers. To see who has been blogging recently and what they have been blogging about simply go to bloggers on the bottom right hand side of this page.

Is í an Dr Kelly Coate (CELT), iar Leas-Déan Taighde, Coláiste na nDán, na nEolaíochtaí Sóisialta & an Léinn Cheiltigh OÉG, a chuir tús leis an tionscnaimh seo. Ghlac Chanté Mouton Kinyon agus Eilís Ní Dhúill páirt lárnach ann ón tús. In 2012 nuair a d’aistrigh Dr Coate go dtí Ollscoil eile tháinig an Dr Sharon Flynn (CELT) i gcomharba uirthi. Tháinig dlús faoin mblag nuair a socraíodh ar páirt a ghlacadh san tionscnamh EXPLORE agus táthar ag dul ó neart go neart ó shin. Ar an taobh deas den leathanach seo feicfidh tú liosta daoine a bhfuil blaganna scríofa acu le déanaí, chomh maith leis an ábhar a bhí faoi chaibidil acu. Más maith leat eolas a fháil ar aon bhlagálaí ar leith, cuir an luchóg os cionn pictiúr an duine agus tabharfaidh sé sin go dí leathanach gravatar an duine sin, más ann do. Cuirimid fáilte roimh blagálaithe nua i gcónaí agus cuirfimid fáilte freisin roimh aiseolas.
