Women in Irish Culture and History

University College Dublin, October 20th-22nd 2006

Recent years have seen a rapid proliferation in research on the role of
women in Irish culture, society and history parallel to the changing
role of women in Ireland. What was the nature of women's cultural
production and participation? What kind of impact did they have on
public life and public policy? What has been the impact of emigration
and immigration? What have our research agendas been and why? How has
this impacted on perceptions of women's lives and experiences, north
and south? How has our perception changed? This interdisciplinary
conference brings together work on culture and history and welcomes
input from a broad range of disciplines and periods.

Proposals for papers and panels are invited in the following areas,

· Culture and Politics
· Feminism and Social and Cultural Change
