Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry

The SHCDA archive is designed to encourage appreciation of the public performance of poetry. To retain an emphasis on the performative qualities of poetry, the SCHDA DOES NOT PROVIDE TRANSCRIPTIONS OF ITS RECORDINGS. However, bibliographic details of ‘print-published’ sources of the recordings are provided, where applicable.

It’s hoped the archive will be of use to students, faculty members and researchers at Queen’s University Belfast who are concerned with the critical appreciation of specific performances and works, and to those with broader interests in the fields of ethnography, Celtic languages, performance studies, and linguistics.

Also included in the archive are instances of PROSE AND MUSIC, where they occur at events during which poetry is performed.
