The Edgeworth family is well-known in academic circles both in Ireland and abroad. Maria and her father Richard Lovell Edgeworth dominate the knowledge the wider community have about the family, both nationally and internationally. This podcast will concentrate on Françoise Edgeworth and will be accompanied by archive stills and filmed interview that will also work as online and public viewing.
Kitty Hughes, an eminent local historian who has done an in-depth study of Françoise Edgeworth, will be interviewed and the points she raises on this exceptional woman's life will be put into context in the broader late 19th century early 20th century's English and Irish societies. This will give a more rounded and fuller picture of another member of the Edgeworth clan.
