MA Research

Aisling Keavey is currently conducting a practice–led Masters by Research in Photography at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Dublin.

She is based in London and this research is concerned with Irish women in London and how their identity as Irish comes into play as a hybridity of identity of being Irish and also living in a foreign country. 

She is looking for participants to conduct interviews around this identity, their experience of being Irish in London post–Brexit, their reasoning for emigrating and their notion of home and belonging.
