Dr James Barry has been misrepresented throughout history as Edinburgh University’s first “woman” graduate.
We take issue with this.
Through Barry’s story, we embark on a messy exploration of our own experiences of gender,
privilege and ownership, leaving us questioning whether Barry’s story is even ours to tell.
