Research Profile

Elizabeth Kiely

Biography

I joined the School of Applied Social Studies as a college lecturer in 1996. Prior to this I worked in research and in different community based youth work posts.  My research and teaching interests include social policy, particularly youth policy and practice, penal policy and feminist social policy. I also teach modules in research methodology.  I was awarded a Government of Ireland Senior Research Scholarship in 2002 to complete my PhD.  

With Dr. Máire Leane I have undertaken an oral history project on women's work in Munster in the 1940s and 1950s, which was funded by the HEA and which has generated an on-line multi-media oral archive (see www.ucc.ie/wisp/ohp) and a number of articles. Based on this oral history project and in co-operation with Dr. Máire Leane I have written a book entitled 'Irish Women at Work 1930-1960, An Oral History' which was published in 2012 by Irish Academic Press. 

Also in collaboration with Dr. Máire Leane, I have co-edited a reader entitled 'Sexualities and Irish Society' which was published by Orpen Press in 2014. I was Principal Investigator on an Irish Research Council funded project entitled 'The Commercialisation and Sexualisation of Children in Ireland, An Exploratory Study' completed and submitted to the Government Department of Children and Youth Affairs in September  2014 and presently being prepared for publication.  I was principal investigator on an NYCI funded Review of Youth Health Inequalities, completed and submitted to the NYCI in 2014 and also in preparation for publication in 2015.
