UCD Centre for the History of Medicine in Ireland (CHOMI) has been committed to the use of new media to engage with academic communities and interested publics. The Centre podcasts its annual seminars, workshops and public engagement events; it also has a research blog, media and project websites, and we run several social media accounts. We feel that this dissemination of our research and activities plays an important role in raising public understanding of history. It facilitates the exchange of knowledge between experts within and outside of universities and it opens up academic research to increase its impact. We firmly believe that social media and digital technologies have the potential to change how scholars interact, collaborate, write and publish.
