Please join Soula Emmanuel and Dr Emer McHugh as they discuss Soula’s acclaimed and hugely significant debut novel, Wild Geese.
Soula Emmanuel is a trans writer who was born in Dublin to an Irish mother and a Greek father. She attended university in Ireland and Sweden, graduating with a master’s in demography which she likes to think inspired her interest in society’s outliers. She has written for IMAGE magazine, Rogue Collective and the Project Arts Centre, and has had fiction published by The Liminal Review. She was longlisted for Penguin’s WriteNow programme in 2020, took part in the Stinging Fly fiction summer school in 2021 and was a participant in the Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency’s mentorship programme for 2021-22. She currently lives on Ireland’s east coast.
Emer McHugh is Marie Skłowdowska-Curie Research Fellow in the School of Arts, English and Languages here at Queen’s, working on the project ‘Shakespeare and the Irish Actor’. She specialises and publishes in early modern performance studies, Shakespeare and Ireland, theatre and celebrity, and gender and sexuality studies. She co-organises The Lockdown Book Club with Aoife Martin and Lizzie Huxley-Jones, an online book club which has hosted writers such as today’s guest, Sinéad Gleeson, Noreen Masud, Julia Armfield, Leone Ross, Sophie White, Jayne A. Quan, Elaine Feeney, Irenosen Okojie, and many more.
