On Monday 28 May 2018 Trinity College Dublin hosted a one-day seminar entitled ‘Female enfranchisement and its limitations, 1918-2018: Gender, politics, class, and caste in Ireland, Europe and India’. This symposium was held to commemorate 100 years of Suffrage in Ireland. It draws together established and early-career scholars in the fields of history, politics, art history and gender studies. The papers focused on the modern world and the invited participants were asked to consider suffrage, gender, class, caste, colonialism, post-colonialism in Ireland, Europe and India.
The seminar took place in the TCD Long Room Hub. Learn more about the full programme.
