Personal profile

Research interests

My research undertakes a critical feminist and anthropological approach to the study of peace-building processes. I am particularly interested in delving into social dynamics of violence and peace and the intersection with emotions, silences and bodily memory. I have conducted ethnographic research in Northern Ireland and in the Basque Country. My research has developed a critique of, and offers an alternative to, conceptions of post- ceasefire processes in terms of orthodox peace-building discourse, as ‘post-conflict’, seeking ‘reconciliation’, and centred on recognition of the experiences of the ‘victims of terrorism’.
