Women at the Table - MAC Studies
To make her own substantial body of writing known and available to the scholarly and general public; and, to contribute to a fuller and more accurate knowledge and understanding of the life and work of a woman whose motivations and remarkable achievements have, since her death in 1899, been largely ignored and often mischaracterized.
Conjecture and interpretation without basis in fact is found in much that has been written about Margaret Anna Cusack over the past 100 years. Simple ignorance of the existence of Cusack’s large and varied oeuvre coupled with the difficulty of finding and researching her works has contributed to this problem of conjecture and interpretation. The yearly journal MAC Studies seeks to address this problem by presenting essays that draw directly upon Margaret Anna Cusack’s own words and that incorporate generous quotations from her writings. Scholars and interested students of Irish and 19th-c. religious history are invited and encouraged to contribute to this aim and purpose.
