Saints, sorcery and secrets: the hidden world of medieval childbirth
The Douglas Hyde is delighted to announce an upcoming talk by medievalist academic Roisin Donohoe. On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Donohoe will discuss her research on the depictions of female healthcare and lay devotion in late medieval England.
The talk will take place in the context of Tamara Henderson’s large-scale sculptural installation Seasons End: More Than Suitcases. The exhibition gathers an ever-changing cast of human-like figures dressed in colourful, embroidered robes, vessels of communication between different states of conscious and unconscious, and who experience states of illness, healing, death, and transformation.
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
