Gender ARC and the Centre for Global Women’s Studies at NUI Galway will host a book launch and public lecture on Thursday, 5 May. NUI Galway’s Dr Caitriona Clear will launch her upcoming book Women’s Voices in Ireland: women’s magazines in the 1950s and 60s.
Irish poet and playwright Mary Coll will introduce Dr Clear’s lecture, ‘What we preserve from the past and what we ignore: some new perspectives on women in Ireland in the 1950s and 60s’. The lecture will focus on Dr Clear’s work which involves reflecting and making realisations about the state of Irish women’s history.

She has also published research on homelessness in post-Famine Ireland, Irish women during the First World War, twentieth-century Irish women writers, and clothes and fashion in Ireland. She is a contributor to the forthcoming Cambridge History of Ireland edited by Thomas Bartlett.
