About the Project

‘Generational Feminisms in Contemporary Northern Irish Performance’ will examine the embodied experiences of different generations of women in Northern Ireland, as well as their differing relationships to feminisms: both feminist movements and feminist ideas as they circulate within culture. These embodied experiences will be explored through the context of performance and will investigate working practices that address the tensions and solidarities of intergenerational relationships. The project will incorporate collaboration with the cultural industry and institutions (Northern Irish dance company Maiden Voyage, and the Linen Hall Library), as well as engagement with diverse audiences beyond the academy.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Grant Agreement No 889279.
