Dr Anna McFarlane presents Reproductive Loss – Confronting the Taboo through Science Fiction

A free Lifelong Learning Dundee event for Dundee Women’s Festival

Dr Anna McFarlane presents a wide-ranging view of reproductive loss (including stillbirth, miscarriage, and infertility) and the inability of women to express and share their pain. She explores how women turn to science fiction, fantasy, and horror, through literary and cinematic examples, asking whether approaching the topic in new ways might help women to break the silence.

Please note that the venue for this talk is The Carnelley Small Lecture Theatre, Carnelley Building, Behind Tower Building, Park Place, Dundee. It will be held on Tuesday 3rd March 2020 at 10 am.

THE WORK THEY SAY IS MINE – WOMEN IN SHETLAND: THE CAMERA WIFE, THE SOOND LASS AND THE MAKKIN’

An event by Graduate Women Scotland East in collaboration with Lifelong Learning Dundee, in Lecture Theatre 1, Dalhousie Building

Made with an all-women crew in 1986, it won the Television and Radio Industries Club of Scotland (TRICS) Award . Shetland women connect us back to a way of life that has been similar for generations, telling the story of the knitters, their skilled and creative work and how they tried to make a living for themselves and their families within an unfair bartering system on the island.

Rarely seen, the screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Rosie Gibson, and curator Liane Cumming.
