Applied Social Studies

Lecturer: Dr Jacqui O’Riordan
Department: Applied Social Studies.


In this submission Dr O’Riordan details aspects of her involvement in migration research, support and activism over the past number of years. As an academic involved in social analysis, she considers it imperative that we challenge normalised dichotomies that separate the academic from the practice of our societies. As sociologists/social scientist our areas of interest are that of society, of people and the social forms in which we live and die. Our academic interests in order to speak to social dynamics, trends, influences and so on are necessarily embedded in the realities of the lives and contexts in which people live out their lives.
