December Scriptorium

1st December 2014 by Maura McHugh

Scriptorium
1. translated as “a place for writing”, which is commonly used to refer to a room in medieval European monasteries devoted to the writing, copying, and illuminating of manuscripts by monastic scribes.
2. Can also be used in reference to the monthly meeting of WGI members at The Stag’s Head.

The famous cave painting at Mélange de Paroles in the South of France for example, dating from environ 5 B.C., depicts Guild writers in a heated exchange of words over what looks like a shocking number of empty glasses (it is not known whether the glasses were once full, half-empty, or whether they were perhaps always empty and have remained thus éternellement in the cave painting). Knowledge of etymology is not necessary to attend the Scriptoria, as those writers in attendance usually find that they know more words leaving than they did coming in.

Scriptorium [2]: from 6.30pm on Thursday, 4 December at The Stag’s Head, 1 Dame Court, Dublin 2

No RSVP necessary: just bring your mouth, your brain, and your money (preferably in reverse order).

The Anti-Room Film Club

8th June 2011 by Maura McHugh

Mogambo

Irish feminist web site, The Anti Room, is organising a monthly film club starting at 7.30pm (lights down at 8pm sharp) on Wednesday, July 6th at The Workman’s Club, Wellington Quay, Dublin 2 (beside the Clarence Hotel).

The first film is Mogambo (1953), starring Ava Gardner, Clark Gable and Grace Kelly. The screenplay was written by John Lee Mahin based on a play by Wilson Collison, and directed by John Ford.

Here’s the planned agenda for this on-going event: “Every month, we’ll knock heads, select a classic film and invite you all to watch it with us over a drink (sadly, the Anti Room kitty doesn’t extend to buying you all booze, but there may be some treats and prizes). The films will include classics, cult hits, new and old movies, some female-focused, some not. Afterwards, we hope to meet lots of you and have a chat about the film. “
