Event description
Multi-talented playwright, performer and columnist Rosaleen McDonagh in conversation with Chandrika Narayanan-Mohan

About this event

Multi-talented playwright, performer and columnist Rosaleen McDonagh is now an author. Her first book Unsettled interrogates Irishness, feminism, racism, ableism, abuse, resistance as well as the bonds of community, family and friendship. Joining Rosaleen in conversation will be writer and performer Chandrika Narayanan-Mohan.

The essays in Unsettled range from the political (Crowning Glory looks at the symbolism and significance of Traveller women’s hair, Politics and Polemics examines racism, sexism and ableism) to the personal (Mam and Me is an exploration of McDonagh’s relationship with her beloved mother, Rose, while Clamped and Body Punishment deal with her physical and sexual abuse in residential care and the subsequent damage she inflicted on her own body as she grappled with the fallout).
