Panels highlight the international nature of Irish women’s lives from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century. The keynotes reflect the international theme of the conference. On Friday, Professor Louisa Passerini, PI of the recent ERC-funded Bodies Across Borders: Oral and Visual Memory in Europe and Beyond (BABE)will discuss ‘Women Across European Borders: Visual Memory and Intersubjectivity’.
