Description

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 will have Eva Aizpurua from the School of Law and the PRILA project. She earned her PhD in Criminology from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain, 2016) and worked as a postdoctoral scholar al the University of Northern Iowa (USA, 2016-2018). Her main research interests include interpersonal violence, life in prison, and survey research methods.

Prisons: the rule of law, accountability and rights (PRILA) is a research project funded by the European Research Council, grant agreement 679362. The Principal Investigator is Dr Mary Rogan, School of Law, the University of Dublin, Trinity College, Ireland. The project commenced on April 1 2016 and will run until March 30 2021.

Daneille O'Sullivan is working on her PhD with the School of Social Work and Social Policy, entitled Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Prisoners in Ireland. Lives, Experiences and Policy. A Qualitative Exploration.

There is a paucity of knowledge, both internationally and domestically on the experiences of lesbian gay and bisexual prisoners. With only one study conducted in Ireland on the population (Carr et al., 2016), this proposed research is qualitative and exploratory in nature. It will seek to examine the lives, experiences and policy pertaining to incarcerated lesbian, gay and bisexual prisoners in Ireland, through the conduct of in-depth interviews. Interviews will be conducted with both currently and formerly incarcerated prisoners who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual. This research will seek to bridge a clear gap in knowledge on a population that is frequently side-lined or ignored. It is hoped that this research will generate new knowledge and understanding on the lived experiences of a hidden population, with a focus on their physical and mental healthcare needs, placement procedures, and how the prison system responds to the unique needs of this population.

Brendan Marsh is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Irish School of Ecumenics and is working on the PERICLES project (Policy recommendation and improved communication tools for law enforcement and security agencies preventing violent radicalisation). The aim of the PERICLES project is to develop a comprehensive approach to prevent and counter violent radicalisation and extremism.

Brendan obtained his PhD in Criminology from Queens University Belfast in 2017. His areas of interest are violence and illegal drug markets, desistance from crime, and processes of religious and political radicalisation that lead to violence.

Brendan has taught on the MA Law in QUB and has been a regular guest lecturer in the Department of Adult education, NUI Maynooth. Prior to entering academia on a full time basis in 2013, Brendan managed a community education project for young drug users in Dublin's South Inner City. He has worked with problem drug users in both a voluntary and paid capacity for almost two decades.
