Research Profile

Eileen Hogan

Biography

I am a member of the Bachelor of Social Science and the Postgraduate Diploma in Youth Work course teams. My research explores culture(s), creative expression, and arts/cultural policy, with a particular focus on community, identity, and well-being. 

I am a founding member and co-ordinator of the Critical Social Thinking Student Research Initiative and a research associate with UCC's Institute for Social Science in the 21st Century (ISS21). I am also a member of a number of national and international associations, including the International Association of Studies in Popular Music (IASPM), the European Sociological Association (ESA), the Sociological Association of Ireland, and the Irish Council for Traditional Music (ICTM).  

I am an active participant in her local community in a range of activist, youth work, and music-oriented organisations. I am a member of Anti-Deportation Ireland and a founding member of UCC Solidarity with Asylum Seekers.  I also act as Secretary and Vice-Chairperson of the Board of Directors of Youth Work Ireland Cork and am a member of the Board of Directors with IndieCork

My colleagues and I recently won the gradIreland/HEA award for Best Postgraduate Course 2017 in the Arts and Humanities for the Masters in Youth Work with Community Arts and Sports Studies. This programme is currently being reconfigured to broaden student access. You may contact me directly for further details about the course, which will run again in 2019. 

Research Interests

Creativity, cultural participation and well-being
My research explores themes of creativity, cultural participation, and well-being. I completed my PhD in the Institute of Popular Music, University of Liverpool, in 2016. My thesis focused on the interrelationship of music-making and well-being, identity and place. Using ethnographic research methods to explore music-making as social practice in Cork, it examined how local music producers articulate their sense of attachment to the city and their involvement in the local music scene. 

I am also interested in the relationship between music-making, welfare and social policy. In particular, I  focus on services which promote community and youth participation and engagement, contextualised within broader discourses of arts participation and cultural funding. I enjoy participating in music-oriented collaborative projects. In 2012, I contributed to a Lyric FM radio documentary on attitudes towards jazz in Ireland in the 1920s and 1930s, which won an award at the New York Festivals World's Best Radio Documentaries. I recently acted as joint curator of the Sir Henrys@UCC Library Exhibition - about Cork's iconic music venue (1977-2003) - with Martin O'Connor (UCC Library) and Stevie G/Stephen Grainger (Cork DJ), which ran from July to September 2014.  

Teaching and Learning in Higher Education
In recent years, I have become more active in the field of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. I completed a Masters in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education level in UCC in 2017, and my dissertation explored the use of blog-facilitated research supervision. This inspired a practical and academic interest in the uses of digital technologies in social policy education. I have since led two collaborative projects funded by the National Forum for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, namely The Social Commons (2016) and SPEEDS (Social Policy Education: Enhancing Digital Skills)(ongoing, 2017-2018).
