TRiSS Bite Size Talks and Pizza is back!

Join us on your lunch break and hear three short snapshots of the diverse research going on here in the social sciences in TCD and enjoy a pizza lunch.

We have a special event for International Womens' Day. Speakers include: Phil Mullen from the School of Sociology on Mixed Race Women in Care, Prof. Catherine Conlon from Social Work and Social Policy on womens' sexual bodies and Prof. Gillian Wylie on sex work and social justice.

After completing a BA in Law, Sociology and Politics at NUI Galway, Catherine Conlon undertook an MA in Women's Studies in University College Dublin. In 1994 she joined the Department of Sociology, Trinity College Dublin as part of an interdisciplinary team commissioned by the Minister for Health to carry out a ground breaking, qualitative inquiry into Irish women's responses to pregnancy entitled 'Women and Crisis Pregnancy' (co-authored with Evelyn Mahon and Lucy Dillon, 1996). Between 1999 and 2000 she served as Research Officer at the National Council for Ageing and Older People. In 2006 she began a PhD at UCD. In 2015 she was appointed lecturer in the School of Social Work and Social Policy TCD where she now teaches on Principles and Issues in Social Policy, Families and research methodologies and is co-Director of the BA in Sociology and Social Policy.

Gillian Wylie is originally from Scotland - where she did her studies in Politics and International Relations at the University of Aberdeen. In 2001 she became a full time lecturer on the M.Phil in International Peace Studies. As well as teaching on the M.Phil in International Peace Studies, she co-ordinates the School of Religion's PG Diploma in Conflict and Dispute Resolution Studies and supervises a large number of masters and doctoral students - particularly in the field of gender, conflict and peace. Her research specialism lies in human trafficking, the politics of international migration, globalization and gender issues. She is an editorial board member of the Journal of Human Trafficking (Taylor and Francis). She served as the School's Director of Postgraduate Teaching and Learning and as the Head of Discipline in the Irish School of Ecumenics in recent years. She is committed to civic engagement, particularly the issue of how universities respond to refugees facing crisis in Europe.

Philomena Mullen read English and Philosophy at Trinity College Dublin. A Government of Ireland scholar, her doctoral research with the Department of Sociology examines how mixed-race women, who grew up in care without families, construct their identity.
