Description

The Royal Irish Academy is celebrating the 250th anniversary of the birth of Maria Edgeworth (1768–1849), Ireland’s first important woman writer and also one of the RIA’s first female honorary members.

This event will open with a talk on Edgeworth’s significance by Claire Connolly MRIA, School of English, UCC; a cultural historian of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Ireland.

Margaret Kelleher, Professor and Chair of Anglo-Irish Literature and Drama at UCD, will chair a panel of Irish women writers who will all be celebrating Edgeworth's legacy:
Marina Carr
Claire Kilroy
Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin
Éilís Ní Dhuibhne

Women Writing Ireland precedes a two-day conference at the Trinity Long Room Hub, TCD on 7 and 8 December 2018 which is being organised by TCD's School of English.
