DkIT Dorothy Macardle Humanities Lecture

by Dundalk Credit Union , 12th March 2024


Dundalk Institute of Technology was delighted to host a recent lecture by Professor Mary McAuliffe who is a renowned historian and lecturer of Gender Studies at UCD. Professor McAuliffe gave the Annual Dorothy Macardle Humanities Lecture on Tuesday 20th February. Her lecture was titled, ‘Writing the Women back in? Reflections on Revolutionary Women Histories and the Decade of Centenaries’.

The Annual Dorothy Macardle Humanities Lecture is a tribute to Dorothy Macardle who was born in Dundalk in 1889. Dorothy was a teacher, political activist, successful novelist, playwright, critic, historian and social campaigner for women’s and children’s rights, with a particular interest in refugees. Each year DkIT bring a leading academic to present a public lecture for students and faculty based on a theme related to Macardle’s many interests but in the general humanities area, with a focus on identity, place and community.

Dundalk Credit Union is proud to support and promote the annual Dorothy Macardle Lecture,  by using our platform and co-operative heritage to promote Dundalk and the wider area, and encourage a socially conscious, sustainable and thriving community.
