Professor’s Poetry Incorporated Into Exhibition

Poems and commentary by Adjunct Assistant Professor of English Connie Roberts have been incorporated into glass artist Alison Lowry’s exhibition, (A)Dressing Our Hidden Truths, an artistic response to the legacy of the Mother and Baby Homes, Magdalene Laundries and Industrial Schools in Ireland. These church-run institutions operated as orphanages and homes for unmarried women and their children. The exhibition is on display at the National Museum of Ireland, Dublin, through May 2020. Professor Roberts spent much of her childhood in an industrial school, and her traumatic experiences there inspired her award-winning poetry collection, Little Witness.
