Woman and Superwoman; Interpretations of Brigid

Music Icon

Ireland has now a new public holiday, celebrating the feast day of Saint Brigid. But who was Brigid; is she mythology or history, goddess or saint, and why does she hold such an elevated place in Irish folklore and tradition? Dr. Niamh Hamill is a lecturer of Irish culture and history, and director of the Institute of Study Abroad Ireland, based in Donegal, Ireland. She is the author of ‘Global Perspectives through the Narratives of Ireland’, a sixteen-module online course of Irish Studies, and a regular panelist and presenter on the importance of cultural competency and internationalization in American higher education. She and co-director John O’Connell host ‘The Calling’, the Milwaukee Irish Fest trip to Ireland at their ISAI campus in January each year, and she is a regular lecturer at the CelticMKE Summer School.
