About this event

This symposium, September 3 – 4, 2021 will explore the various ways in which Irish women writers engaged in and developed diverse creative collaborations in order to produce a wide range of works. It seeks to investigate how they created their material(s), sometimes crossing over from one media to another or seeking avenues for publication outside of traditional routes. In doing so, the symposium will consider not only the ways in which women crossed borders but also the extent to which they managed to embrace multiple places at the same time. The conferece will start at 1pm (Irish time) on both days .

The online symposium includes a number of special events including

Garry Hynes in conversation with Dr Anna Pilz
