2016. April 18th. A dozen Galician women - Research seminar with Elvira Ribeiro
The Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies and the Irish Centre for Galician Studies are delighted to present A dozen Galician women, a research seminar on Galician female writers by Galician poet Elvira Ribeiro.
In 1976 the publishing house Galaxia issued A Dozen Galicians, conversations between the journalist and writer Víctor Freixanes and twelve figures of Galician culture. All men. Forty years later, and now well into the second decade of the 21st Century (being called by some “The Woman’s Century”), it is more than appropriate to turn our attention to (at least) “A Dozen Galician Women”, in this case, poets. Each of them Galician and contemporary women poets: Chus Pato (Ourense, 1955), Ana Romaní (Noia, 1962), Helena de Carlos (Cenlle, 1964), Luísa Castro (Foz, 1966), Lupe Gómez (Curtis, 1972), Estíbaliz Espinosa (A Coruña, 1974), Olga Novo (A Pobra do Brollón, 1975), Iolanda Zúñiga (Vigo, 1975), María do Cebreiro (Santiago de Compostela, 1976), Silvia Penas (Vigo, 1980), Valentina Carro (Cambados, 1984), Oriana Méndez (Vigo, 1984).
