ARINS Advisory group member awarded funding from HEA07 March 2022
Fidelma Ashe (UU) will research gender and constitutional change with Nuala Finnegan (UCC)
Professor Fidelma Ashe, Ulster University and ARINS Advisory group member has been awarded funding from the Higher Education Authority to develop her work with Nuala Finnegan, University College Cork, on gender and constitutional change.
Professors Ashe and Finnegan's research titled 'Critical epistemologies Across Borders: Gendering visions of constitutional futures on the island of Ireland (CEAB)' includes women with a range of cross-cutting identities in discussions about a shared island. The project challenges de-gendered approaches to the ideal of a shared island. It frames women, in all their diversity, as important yet, often marginalised, stakeholders in Ireland's future.
The project’s inter-disciplinary approach will open cross-community, cross-border and co-created spaces to enable women to develop and share critical, multi-layered and diverse epistemologies, on the gender implications of shifts in constitutional arrangements and/or relationships on the island of Ireland. CEAB will disseminate these methods so that they can be adapted and reused at the local level by grassroot groups.
