November 16, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm| £5.00
The Mary Ann McCracken Foundation are hosting a special ‘Women and the Writing of History‘ virtual panel discussion exploring how women have been written into, or as the case may be out, of history. The panel will include contributions from Dr Margaret Ward and our Archive and Heritage Development Officer based on their own research and experiences. The panel will highlight particular aspects of women’s role in Irish history, and the attitude of biographers towards their subjects whilst exploring some key female figures including Mary Ann McCracken (1770-1866) and Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington (1877-1946).
The panel discussion will be chaired by Norma Sinte, Mary Ann McCracken Foundation Chair, and attendees will have the opportunity to pose their questions to the panel.
Please note tickets for this event are priced at £5 per device and the event will be hosted live on Zoom. The login details will be emailed on the morning of the event.
