Organization: Women on Ireland Research Newtwork

Reaching the pinnacle of the 1916-2016 centenary commemorations, questions of gender, women and femininity intersected with the idea of Irishness have never been so pivotal. This symposium aims to bring together current scholarships critiquing female experiences, how women are represented in culture, media, and socialisation through the lens of an Irish experience.

Topics discussed may include but are not restricted to: - Women in politics - Women within education - Representations of women in literature, drama, film, art, and culture - Migration - Health and medicine - Sexuality - Women and sport - Nationalism and religion - Women north and south of the border
