Presentation of Hannah Lynch and Spain
News12 June 2019
The Ambassador hosted the presentation of Hannah Lynch and Spain, Collected Journalism of an Irish New Woman 1892-1903, which is a fully annoted edition of Hannah Lynch´s articles on Spain - many of which are devoted to travel - together with a crictical study of her connections with the country. Lynch, a cosmopolitan New Woman, viewed Spain with ambivalence, impatient with its resistence to change but seduced by its landscapes and peoples. Her writing, revealing of the author´s committment to women's emancipation, warrants attention from those wishing to further expolre women's contributions to the cultural and literary relations between Ireland and the Iberian Penninsula.
