Via IrishCentral, March 22,2016

On April 4, Quinnipiac will host the lecture, “Twinsome Minds: Recovering 1916 in Images and Stories,” from 5-6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences on the North Haven campus.

Twinsome minds, a phrase from Finnegan’s Wake, is a multimedia performed talk with text by Richard Kearney and images by Sheila Gallagher. The performance re-imagines a series of micro-narratives surrounding 1916 in Dublin and the World War I battlefields of Belgium.
