I am a Lecturer in Social Policy, Director of the Masters in Youth Work with Community Arts and Sports Studies, and a member of the Bachelor of Social Science course team.  

I lecture on a diversity of programmes in UCC and across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules. My teaching areas include, broadly, the politics of racism, gender and sexuality, social research methods, cultural policy and popular cultures.  More specifically, I teach on the third year of the BSocSc and BA (Early Years and Childhood Studies) programmes (SS3032SS3015 and SS3401).  I co-ordinate two placement modules on the BSocSc degree (SS2024 and SS3030).  I contribute to the Masters in Social Policy programme (SS6307) and the Masters in Women's Studies (WS6002).  I currently supervise a number of undergraduate research dissertation students from the BSocSc degree, as well as students from the Masters in Voluntary and Community Sector Management and Masters in Women's Studies programmes, and co-supervise a student on the MRes programme (with Mel Mercier, School of Music and Theatre).  

I am a founding member and co-ordinator of the Critical Social Thinking Student Research Initiative and a research associate with the Institute for Social Science in the 21st Century (ISS21).  I am also a member of the International Association of Studies in Popular Music (IASPM), a member of the Board of Directors of Youth Work Ireland Cork and Assistant Editor of Youth Work Ireland's Scene magazine.
 
I am currently completing my doctoral thesis on music-making, identity and popular music policy, which is based on ethnographic research in Cork city. I am also completing a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.   
 
My other current research activities include a collaborative, interdisciplinary, all-Ireland study of music education-oriented youth work, on which I am Principal Investigator, with a research team from University of Ulster, NUI Maynooth, Dundalk IT, and various youth work sector organisations.  Also, I am a member of the organising committee for a forthcoming conference on 'Crisis, Migration and New Forms of Mobility'.  Both of these research projects run in association with ISS21 and are funded through UCC's Strategic Research Fund.  
 
I am involved in a range of activist organisations.  I have previously worked with the Sexual Violence Centre's Stop Sex Trafficking Campaign and with the NASC Immigrant Support Centre and am a current campaign member of Anti-Deportation Ireland.  

I am particularly interested music-oriented collaborative projects. I contributed to a Lyric FM radio documentary on attitudes towards jazz in Ireland in the 1920s and 1930s, which recently won an award at the New York Festivals World's Best Radio Documentaries. I am also currently curating an exhibition on the iconic Cork music venue, Sir Henrys, with Martin O'Connor (UCC Library) and Stevie G/Stephen Grainger (Cork DJ), which will exhibit in the foyer of UCC Library from July to September 2014.


My research interests are diverse, but are generally oriented around issues of creativity, culture and participation. My doctoral thesis focuses on the ways in which the city is produced through music-making activities, using ethnographic research methods to explore music-making as creative labour in Cork.  It examines how music-makers articulate their sense of attachment to the city and their involvement in the local music industries, theoretically unpacking discursive representations of cultural identity and locality, and interrogating contemporary conceptualisations of creative entrepreneurialism as a panacea to urban problems and a driver of economic growth. 

I am also interested in the relationship between music-making, welfare and social policy, particularly focusing on services which promote community and youth participation and engagement, contextualised within broader discourses of arts participation and cultural funding.  

I have written and presented on issues including:
arts funding and corporate philanthropy
music policy as social policy
rap, youth work and youth activism
popular music and youth cultures
music-making, youth and intergenerationality
music, national identity, 'race' and gender
music, migration and transcultural capital
migrant musicians' narratives of identity, place and belongingness
spatio-cultural connections through music enterprises and collectives
ethnographic and netnographic methods in popular music research  
popular music and feminist praxis
locality, identity work and music-making activities 


I am also interested in broader topics relating to migration, gender, cultural policy, racism, and neoliberalism.

Intersections: Youth music and music educationPrincipal Investigator1. Aim: This interdisciplinary initiative aims to develop a new Irish/Northern Irish research cluster on youth work and music education. 2. Objectives: a. To establish an interdisciplinary, inter- and intra-institutional Irish and Northern Irish research cluster, including the four institutions on the island of Ireland which provide both youth work professional training and music education. b. To develop research links between academic institutions and local community-based youth work projects which include a music education project. c. To develop a research model for evidencing and evaluating the uses, meanings and values of music education methodologies in youth work practice. 3. Project partners: The research project establishes an Irish and Northern Irish platform for youth work/music research. Two networking events with research partners and youth sector organisations are proposed, with the intention of consolidating partnerships and developing a research model and strategy. A second key outcome of the project will be a conference in UCC on youth work and music education and the publication of articles based upon conference papers in international peer-reviewed journals. This will enable us to strategically position UCC and partner institutions as both leaders/Principle Investigators and collaborators in large international research proposals. UCC will act as lead in this research initiative, involving staff members from the School of Applied Social Studies, the School of Music and the ISS21 Children and Young People cluster. Our partner Irish/N.Irish-based institutions, which provide both youth work professional training and music education programmes, are: • NUI, Maynooth: Led by Prof Maurice Devlin • Dundalk IT: Led by Dr Daithí Kearney, Lecturer in Music • University of Ulster: Led by Dr Anthony Morgan, Lecturer in Adult and Continuing Education, School of Sociology and Applied Social Studies01-NOV-1301-OCT-14
