Department of Ultimology
Via Linda Doyle, Darpa SDR drone hackfest 2017

Ultimology is the study of that which is dead or dying in a series or process. When applied to academic disciplines, it becomes the study of extinct or endangered subjects, theories, and tools of learning. 

The first Department of Ultimology was established by Fiona Hallinan and Kate Strain in January 2016, at Trinity College Dublin. Operating from the department's headquarters at CONNECT, located in Dunlop Oriel House, the department conducts qualitative research into endangered subjects within academic disciplines across the university, as a way to explore the evolution and disappearance of forms of knowledge that in turn shape academia and the educational context.
