Maggie O'Neill, University College Cork, Ireland

Professor Maggie O'Neill is Professor in Sociology at University College Cork and a member of the Centre for the Study of the Moral Foundations of Economy and Society.  Before joining UCC she was Chair in Sociology & Criminology in the Department of Sociology at the University of York, and Professor in Criminology at the University of Durham and Principal of Ustinov College. Professor O'Neill describes herself as an inter-disciplinary scholar. Her PhD in Sociology explored the transformative possibilities for conducting feminist participatory action research with sex workers and was awarded in 1996. The majority of the empirical research Professor O'Neill has conducted uses participatory action research, ethnographic and biographical methods and participatory arts. She has a long history of working with artists and community groups to conduct arts based research-working together to create change; and social justice is at the core of her work.

We are delighted to be able to invite you to hear Professor O'Neill discuss her research with us.
