Human Remains and Violence

Human remains and violence aims to question the social legacy of mass violence by studying how different societies have coped with the dead bodies resulting from war, genocide and state sponsored brutality.

Rethinking Borders

Crossing to the other side has many meanings, depending on what is crossing, where, when and why. Yet it always involves borders: there can be no other side without a marker between the sides, something that gives the sense of a difference between here and that other place. Equally, refusing to cross, or refusing to accept the crossers, also requires a marker between different sides. ...

Universities and Lifelong Learning

Universities and Lifelong Learning analyses the external engagement activities of universities and third-level institutions and is concerned with the range of activity that lies beyond the traditional mission of teaching and research.
