Presentations of two remarkable research projects on social movements in Ireland and beyond
This seminar showcases the social movements research of two recent PhD graduates in the Dept of Sociology, Maynooth.
Dr Terry Dunne will be speaking on his research on collective agency and economic change in early-nineteenth-century Ireland, the impact of social conflict within the agricultural sector on social structure, and the associated cultural formation of a sense of agency.
Dr Ania Szolucha will be speaking on her research on direct democracy in the Occupy movement in Ireland and the United States, its social relevance in the context of the history of democracy, and her new project about grassroots renewable energy initiatives.
Both speakers will also offer some insight into the final processes of PhD study which may be useful to others about to be in a similar situation.
As Ania is leaving to take up a research fellowship at the University of Bergen, Norway, we will be having post-seminar farewell drinks.
Where: Iontas conference room, Iontas Building, North Campus, Maynooth (https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/campus-life/campus-map)
