“The Quiet Girls of Early Ireland: Women in medieval Irish literature,” a lecture by Dr. Geraldine Parsons, Senior Lecturer in Celtic and Gaelic and Head of Subject at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, seeks to complicate the gender history of the Finn Cycle, by recovering women’s roles in its production and in the narratives themselves. Introduced by Chair of the Fund for Irish Studies Fintan O’Toole.
