Pegasus is delighted to announce that artist, journalist and broadcaster Clara Rose Thornton has joined our team of experts.
Chicago-born Clara Rose, now living in Dublin, is a spoken word artist, culture journalist, event organiser, and RTÉ radio and television broadcaster.
Her work focuses on the arts and their intersection with social justice, identity politics, history, and place. In Ireland she is a film critic for Arena on RTÉ Radio 1, and discusses film, race, and culture on The Ryan Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio and Morning Edition on RTÉ TV.
Clara Rose, a former Leinster Slam Poetry Champion, performs her provocative spoken word at festivals and venues across Europe. Her arts and culture criticism is published internationally, including in the Irish Independent and Irish Times.
Mná na hÉireann Roadshow
Clara Rose Thornton is joining Dr. Myles Dungan and a team of Ireland’s most sought-after women historians to offer libraries, county councils, country houses, history groups and festivals a unique package of lectures and presentations on the changing lives and roles of Mná na hÉireann a century ago.
Catriona Crowe, former Head of Special Projects at the National Archives of Ireland; Dr. Kate O’Malley, of the Royal Irish Academy; and author Liz Gillis will also be among the key contributors celebrating 2018 as the centenary of Irish women winning the right to vote, and the election of Ireland’s first female member of parliament – Countess Markiewicz.
Leitrim, Cavan and Louth are among the counties the roadshow will visit in 2017/18.
This 2018 roadshow builds on Dr. Dungan’s hugely successful history roadshows The Fighting Irish (2010+), The Great War Roadshow (2014/15) and Paths To Freedom (2016/17).
