Event description

Description

In the centenary year of women's suffrage, the National Print Museum is delighted to host a day-long seminar exploring the use of print media by Irish suffragists and their opponents in their methods of promotion and protest.

A number of expert speakers will discuss the suffrage campaign's strategic use of print media such as newspapers and cartoons, the events of the 1918 general election, and the ways in which print was used as a mass media for the development of the movement. A full listing of speakers and talks will be announced on the National Print Museum's website very shortly.

This event is being organised in conjunction with the National Print Museum’s current exhibition Print, Protest and The Polls: The Irish women's suffrage campaign and the power of print media.

Admission is free, however booking is required to secure a place.

The Museum is offering a discount for all seminar delegates on the Response Project and Replica Series prints, which were created in connection with the Print, Protest and The Polls exhibition. Details of how to avail of this discount offer will be made available once you book a place on the Seminar.

The Seminar is kindly sponsored by the European Year of Cultural Heritage Community Heritage Grant Scheme 2018.
