Professor Emilie Pine
For this month’s Limerick Lady podcast, Emma Langford and Ann Blake talk to writer Professor Emilie Pine about her bestselling book, “Notes To Self” (2018), a collection of personal essays about alcoholism, family, relationships, sexual abuse and miscarriage. She talks about how it felt to share those life experiences with the world in the form of a book, and how she navigated the transition from academic writing to non-fiction.
Emilie Pine is a professor of modern drama in the School of English, Drama and Film at University College Dublin. She teaches and supervises student work in the fields of theatre and memory cultures. Emilie is also Director of the Irish Memory Studies Research Network and editor of the Irish University Review. She recently edited the Special Issue on Moving Memory: The Dynamics of the Past in Irish Culture.
