Her Story: Doireann Ní Ghríofa and Emma Donoghue in Conversation
July 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
“To study a female life marked by silence is to attempt a cartography of fog.” – Doireann Ní Ghríofa
Throughout history, the intricate and intimate details of women’s lives have too often been revealed only through the male gaze, if not altogether erased. Complex lives and experiences have been reduced to a name on a gravestone, a reference in a relative’s letter, or a fleeting mention in a newspaper clipping. Writers Emma Donoghue and Doireann Ní Ghríofa explore these gaps to find the stories within, re-imagining the lives of women long gone. Join the authors for a conversation about writing, research, unearthing the past, self-discovery, motherhood, art, memory, and the importance of amplifying women’s voices on and off the page.
