I am a first year PhD student in UCC and believe my project links with the aims of this site. My project discusses the narrative representations of psychological disorder in Irish women’s writing 1850-1914. I am currently researching ill studied texts in conjunction with psychoanalytic, postcolonial, feminist and narrative theory. The main research questions are; what psychological disorders are represented in the narrative and do the texts suggest these disorders are the result of universal struggles with femininity confined by patriarchal society or are they due to postcolonial issues. While I am in the initial stages of my research, I am looking forward to becoming more involved with conferences and promotion of engagement with these critically neglected texts in the near future.
