International Womens Day - Exhibition Guided Tour

Feb 26 2020 Posted: 18:26 GMT

What impact did women writers make in history? When is a female author (not) a female author? Join us as we explore these questions in a guided tour of the ‘Readers & Reputations’ exhibition, to celebrate International Women’s Day, on Saturday 7 March 2020.

The exhibition, sponsored by the Irish Research Council, showcases the work of the RECIRC project on early modern women’s writing, funded by the European Research Council (ERC) – the first literature project in Ireland to be awarded ERC funding. The project’s leader, Prof. Marie-Louise Coolahan, and two researchers, Dr. Felicity Maxwell and Dr. Bronagh McShane, will discuss the ways women gained controversial and exemplary reputations and invite visitors to explore the interactive exhibits.

 Tours will meet inside the entrance to the Hardiman Research Building (next to the library), NUI Galway, at 11am and 1pm, Saturday 7 March. For further information, contact
