Eda Sagarra, a former Professor of German at Trinity College Dublin and the first-ever registrar at an Irish or British university, has written an intelligent account of her upbringing, travels and life in academia. She has been a significant and influential figure in Irish and European academic policy-making, contributing to the early development of the Erasmus scheme. This memoir is an absorbing account of a life well-lived over the last eight decades, offering keen observations on critical events in Irish and European history along the way – with great flashes of wry humour, particularly when reflecting on the many barriers faced by those women of Eda’s generation who boldly sought to build an academic career.
This talk will take place on the TCD campus. Further details will be emailed to attendees prior to the event.
Booking opens at 9.00 am on February 23rd.
