On 31 October, dlr LexIcon hosted a special event in association with my Modern Wife, Modern Life exhibition.  I was joined by Lorna Sixsmith, author of the recently published How to Be a Perfect Farm Wife, to discuss expectations of marriage in 1960s rural and urban Ireland.

This podcast was recorded by Real Smart Media, and was generously funded by the History Group, School of Humanities at the University of Hertfordshire.
