This webinar brings together researchers, writers and the public as part of the Bealtaine Festival 2022. Through presentations, discussions and readings, the online event will explore the empowering potential of women’s creativity and life writing, and the importance of recognising the diversity of women’s experiences as they grow older, experiences which are so often stereotyped in literature and culture.
Speakers: Ashton Applewhite, Prof. Molly Andrews, Dr Mary McGill, Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, Dr Áine Ní Léime, Helen O’Rahilly, & participants from a life writing workshop for women aged 50 and older.
Organisers: Dr Michaela Schrage-Frueh (School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures), Dr Margaret O’Neill (Irish Centre for Social Gerontology) and Karen Hanrahan (University of Brighton/Moore Institute), in partnership with Age & Opportunity and with funding from the Irish Research Council.
Attendance is free but booking is crucial.
