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.
