New PhD funded research by ConventCollections scholars includes a major piece of work on Mother Michael Corcoran IBVM, who made a substantial contribution to not only the history of the Irish Loreto/IBVM convents, but also to Irish education for girls and women. Pictured here is Ruth Ferris MA, researching at the Bar Convent Archives, York. Also pictured, Dr Hannah Thomas, Archivist at the Bar Convent, in York.
