“Only connect”: Irish women’s voices, Latin America & the Irish women’s writing network
Laing, Kathryn
This essay offers a preliminary sketch of the recent critical attention given to Irish women and the literary interfaces between Ireland and Latin America (e.g. travel writers, immigrant or diasporic writers, and those who wrote ‘travelling texts’) at the turn of the twentieth century. This growing field is then situated in the broader context of new scholarship on Irish women’s writing, literary and otherwise, published during this period. It also introduces the Irish Women’s Writing Network, launched in 2016, and its potential benefits to scholars, and a consideration of the ways in which intersections and overlaps can be further explored and promoted, networks can be established, and conversations and cross-pollinations facilitated.
