Cancellation Notice: Doing Women’s Film and Television History V

Notice of Conference Cancellation: Doing Women’s Film and Television History V: Forming Histories/Histories in Formation, 20th-22nd May, 2020, Maynooth University, Maynooth, Co. Kildare, Ireland

From the Conference organizers:

Dear all,

We are profoundly disappointed to have to announce the cancellation of the Doing Women’s Film & Television History V conference at Maynooth University, May 20-22nd 2020. The committee, the network and the university have monitored the development of the COVID-19 outbreak. Given the increase in cases in Ireland this week, the Irish government has today taken special measures to restrict on-campus teaching and indoor gatherings of more than 100 people. This will extend until 29th March at the earliest and possibly beyond this date. We had hoped that the situation would have de-escalated but, unfortunately, this has not occurred to date.

The full notice and more information can be found on the conference website.
