    Alison Baker-Lewton

    Victoria University, Australia

    alison.baker@vu.edu.au

    Project Title in The Moore Institute: The Resonance Project: Sounds of Youth Social Change.

    Alison Baker-Lewton is a Senior Lecturer in Social Pedagogy in the College of Arts and Education at Victoria University in Melbourne. She received her PhD in Psychology in the Public Interest (Community Psychology) at North Carolina State University. Her research draws on critical community psychology, public health and education to explore how inequality impacts young people from marginalized backgrounds, focusing on social identities, sense of belonging and health and well-being. This research has focused on the contexts and ecologies of young people’s lives, including neighborhoods, schools and local arts and sports programs.

    Over the past several years a significant part of her research has examined racialisation as a form of structural violence and its impact on young people in Australia. This has included experiences of both adults and young people of African background who have come to Australia as migrants/refugees, drawing attention to the role of settings and activities (i.e. sports, alternative education, community-based arts) as well as the symbolic resources deployed in the development of identity, belonging, and social action. In her research she has mobilised critical race theories and liberation psychology to map empowered community responses and narratives of resistance. Using visual and sound research methodologies, this work has explored possibilities for social change and activism through public and community pedagogies.

    Project Title in the Moore Institute: The Art of Deleting: A Study of Erasure Poetry, Practices of Control, Surveillance, and Censorship

    While at the Moore Institute, Seiça is learning from existing research and methodology about archival techniques put in practice at the James Hardiman Library. He is researching the methods related to redaction employed in the digitization of the Abbey Theatre Archive. He is also collaborating with Justin Tonra on the poetry projects EverVerse and eÖ, which are biometrical data-responsive performances created by both that share common affiliations.

    Álvaro Seiça is a writer and researcher. He holds a PhD in Digital Culture from the University of Bergen (2018). His publications include the poetry books Ensinando o Espaço (2017), Ö (2014), permafrost (2012), and the scholarly book Transdução (2017). Seiça has been a PhD Fellow at the University of Bergen (UiB), where he taught courses in electronic literature and digital humanities, and worked with the ELMCIP Knowledge Base. His PhD dissertation “setInterval(): Time-Based Readings of Kinetic Poetry” (2017) was hosted by the Electronic Literature Research Group at UiB, and advised by Scott Rettberg and Chris Funkhouser.

    In 2018, he is starting a 3-year postdoctoral project entitled “The Art of Deleting,” between UiB and UCLA, which is funded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship. “The Art of Deleting” aims to analyze practices of erasure poetry as forms of resistance and activism in digital culture. The project investigates various levels of erasure poetry, by focusing on its social, political, and aesthetic dimensions, and by tracing its antecedents.

    Project Title in The Moore Institute: Truth, Drama and Reconciliation

    Vice Chancellor’s Research Fellow in the Humanities
    PhD, Queen’s University Belfast, 2013; MA, Queen’s University Belfast, 2010; BA, University of Oxford 2003

    Connal’s research emphasises the interconnectedness of history, politics, and culture.
    Connal's doctoral thesis on Ulster Protestant working class politics and culture since 1960 viewed political developments and recent history through the prism of dramatists and writers from this background. His current research builds on his expertise in Northern Ireland to comparatively explore how states such as South Africa, Spain, Chile and others deal with a divided and violent past. It illustrates how the arts and culture resonate with a transitional justice element, playing an active role in conflict transformation and peace-building across the world

    Kerry Sinanan

    KERRY.SINANAN@nuigalway.ie

    I specialise in the literature and culture of slavery, abolition and race in the long eighteenth century. My current research is a multidisciplinary project analysing the competing discourses that constructed representations of slave women and their bodies in contemporary literary and historical texts and in the visual arts. The work for this emerged out of research for my monograph, Slave Masters and the Language of Self: Traders, Planters and Colonial Agents, 1750-1834, currently under consideration. At The Moore I am undertaking further research on the background of Nicholas Owen an Irish-born eighteenth-century slave trader who lived on the Guinea Coast in the 1750s.

    Project Title for The Moore Institute: "Gender-based Violence, Cultural Trauma and the Collective Guilt"

    Osu/Opo-Sisu: Gender-based Violence, Cultural Trauma, and the Collective Guilt.

    In this project, which combines seminar presentation and dramatised reading of two plays, Lekan Balogun examines how two cultural practices (Osu among the Igbo of southeast Nigeria and Opo-sisu among the Yoruba in the southwest) encourage gender violence, and the social implication of their continued practise by the people. While Osu is similar to the caste system in India in terms of segregation and the Opo-sisu, the custom of leviration in which a widow is given out in marriage to her deceased husband's brother(s) is comparable to the Olah Roma among the Romani from the perspective patriarchal culture, these traditional and agelong cultural practices are examined in light of both contemporary social reality and their economic/political implications

    Lekan Balogun won a doctoral scholarship of the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, for his PhD research in the field of Postcolonial Adaptation & Appropriation (Shakespeare), African and Diaspora Theatre and Intercultural Performance, after his BA & MA (Distinction) in Theatre Arts from the Department of Creative Arts, University of Lagos, Akoka, Nigeria, where he now teach playwriting, literary theory and criticism, Cultural and Gender Studies etc

    Newcastle University, UK

    m.f.cross@ncl.ac.uk

    The Project Title in The Moore Institute: The influence of Ireland on the social investigator Flora Tristan (1803-1844).

    The influence of Ireland on the social investigator Flora Tristan (1803-1844)
    My research focuses through an interdisciplinary lens on nineteenth-century political ideas of the early nineteenth-century feminist socialist writer and activist, Flora Tristan (1803–1844).
    I wish to undertake an investigation of the Irish dimension present in a French thinker who is recognised as one of France’s key socialist feminists yet whose intellectual strength is still relatively unexplored. The aim of the study is:
    • to understand the style and scope of Flora Tristan’s knowledge of Ireland in relation to her contemporaries Daniel O’ Connell, Alexis de Tocqueville and Gustave de Beaumont
    • to measure the influence of Irish affairs in a transnational setting of socialist and feminist activism
    • to establish the originality of Flora Tristan’s contribution to political thought as a result of her consciousness of the Irish experience.

I am supervising a PhD student and maintaining my links with the Newcastle Labour and Society History Group. My current research project is a double biography of Flora Tristan and her biographer Jules-L Puech. As the leading scholar of Flora Tristan studies with the first annotated translation of her journal and the first book ever published on her correspondence, I have published and presented papers in French History and in Gender Studies in a wide international community. I was President of the Society for the Study of French History from 2014 to 217. From to 2005 to 2013 I served as President of the Association for the Study of Modern and Contemporary France (ASM&CF) and was on the executive committee of the Association of University Professors and Heads of French from 2003 to 2013. I am a member of the editorial board of the journal French History and a trustee of the Society for the Study of French history (SSFH). 2015 saw my appointment to the positions of Head of Research of the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies (CNCS), Durham University, a position I held for 18 months.

    Matthew Noone

    University of Limerick

    Matthew.Noone@ul.ie

    Project Title in The Moore Institute: ‘One should listen to sean-nos like Indian rag’: Irish music Orientalism- a performative response.

    Matthew 'mattu' Noone (THE BAHH BAND, MARTIN HAYES & DENNIS CAHILL, AnTARA, JIGGY), is an Australian-Irish ex-indie rocker and well-known performer of the 25 stringed lute called sarode. After beginning his musical career as a guitarist and drummer in Brisbane and Sydney in the mid 90's, Matthew fell in love with the sarode in a trip to India in 2003. He has studied North Indian Classical music for over a decade with Sougata Roy Chowdhury in Kolkata and more recently with UK based sarodiya, K. Sridhar. He has performed Indian music across the globe and was a founding member of successful fusion group, The Bahh Band. He has recorded with a host of contemporary Irish musicians such as Tommy Hayes (AnTara), Sean Tyrell and Ronan O 'Snodaigh and has collaborated with Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill. Matthew plays two unique hybrid sarodes which were created with funds from the Music Network. He is also an Irish Research Council scholar and completed a practice based PhD research into Irish-Indian musical sympathies in the Irish world Academy in the University of Limerick.

    This research project focusses on the supposition of Irish-Indian musical connections, most notably the idea of sean-nos singing bearing a strong resemblance to Indian classical music (Ó Ríada, 1962; Feehan, 1982; Quinn, 1987). It is an extension of my previous research in exploring Irish traditional music and Orientalist discourse through an Arts Practice and performance based methodology (Noone, 2016). This research will use the collaborative artistic practice of two musicians (Matthew Noone on the sarode and sean-nos singer Lillis O Laoire) as a case study to explore the veracity of Irish-Indian musical sympathies.

    Monica Mulrennan

    Concordia University, Canada.

    monica.mulrennan@concordia.ca

    Project title in The Moore Institute: Uncovering the historical and cultural dimensions of seaweed harvesting in Ireland

    Monica Mulrennan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography, Planning and Environment at Concordia University in Montreal. She was born, raised and educated (PhD, UCD) in Ireland. Her research is centred on indigenous-led strategies of conservation/environmental stewardship that draw upon indigenous institutions of knowledge and practice, and enhance local authority over decisions affecting the lives, lands, seas and resources of indigenous communities. She has worked closely with the James Bay Crees (Eeyou Istchee), in northern Quebec for more than twenty years and is one of the lead researchers on an ambitious proposal to create the Tawich (Marine) Conservation Area in the eastern part of James Bay.

    She has maintained a research partnership since the early 1990s with indigenous Torres Strait Islanders in northern Queensland, Australia. This work has focused on the documentation and mapping of Islander knowledge, customary tenure and resource harvesting practices. Her most recent work is focused on the connections of indigenous Islander women to seaspace.
    The research she will conduct during her time with the Moore Institute represents a departure from her work with indigenous coastal communities. Monica hopes to contribute to the documentation of the history of seaweed harvesting along the Atlantic seaboard. She is particularly interested in the system of customary arrangements that evolved over the centuries for access and rights to collect seaweed.

    Project Title in The Moore Institute: Radical Political Performances.

    Director of the Institute of Performance and Urban Living; Senior Lecturer in Theatre and Performance.

    Education:
    PhD (Leeds), MA (QMUL), BA (Warwick)

    Research Interests:
    I am interested in why we (still) make theatre and performance: what is it for, what does it do culturally, politically, socially, aesthetically? Within this overarching frame, my research interests lie in critical approaches to contemporary performance and the relationship between performance and the wider socio-cultural and political contexts in which it is made. My work is engaged with poststructuralist and political philosophy, is interdisciplinary in nature and particularly focused on questions of spectatorship, witnessing, trauma and ethics and is concerned to explore the socio-political efficacy of theatre, performance and other cultural practices. While at the Moore Institute I will be researching non-traditional performance forms (e.g.: protests or political presentations) that relate to the history of the Troubles, alongside more recognisable forms of theatre that seek in some way to understand that history.

    The Project Title in The Moore Institute: Identity formation at the Dublin Gate Theatre.

    Ruud van den Beuken is a lecturer in the Department of English Language & Culture at Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands). He has been awarded the Irish Society for Theatre Research's (ISTR) New Scholars’ Prize (2015) for his research on postcolonial mythological plays, and in April 2017, he received his PhD (cum laude) for his thesis on cultural memory and national identity formation at the Dublin Gate Theatre. He is the Assistant Director of the NWO-funded Gate Theatre Research Network and the recipient of the 2017 Education Award for best junior lecturer in the Faculty of Arts at Radboud University.
    As a visiting research fellow at the Moore Institute, Van den Beuken will utilize the unique new resources that are offered by its ongoing project to digitize the Gate Theatre’s archives. His aims in studying these materials is twofold: on the one hand, he will finalise the manuscript of his book on the Gate Theatre’s role in Irish cultural identity formation by incorporating many previously inaccessible archival resources. On the other, he will chart and study these materials to pave the way for the expert meetings, the conference and the exhibition that will be organised in 2018, 2019 and 2020 by the recently established Gate Theatre Research Network, which will study the Gate’s engagement with issues of cosmopolitanism, cultural exchange and identity formation in a broader European context.

    Project Title for The Moore Institute: “The No-Place in Us All”: The Seaside Resort in the Irish Literary Imagination, 1960 to present.

    Sinéad Moynihan is a Senior Lecturer in Twentieth-Century Literature at the University of Exeter. Her research and teaching interests cluster around Irish, American and Transatlantic Literature and Culture, particularly in relation to questions of race, migration, displacement and diaspora. She has recently completed a book manuscript - Ireland, Migration and Return Migration: The “Returned Yank” in the Cultural Imagination, 1952 to present - which is forthcoming with Liverpool University Press. Her previous major publication, the outcome of a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship, was "Other People's Diasporas": Negotiating Race in Contemporary Irish and Irish-American Culture (Syracuse, NY: Syracuse UP, 2013).

    At the Moore Institute, Moynihan will work on a new project that identifies the seaside resort as an important space in Irish literature of the past fifty years. Specifically, it argues that just as British and Irish seaside resorts were undergoing profound transformation – what John K. Walton refers to as “the traumatic changes of the 1970s and 1980s” – the seaside resort emerges in Irish literature as the backdrop for various kinds of personal and social rupture, ranging from adolescence, mental breakdown, marital break-up, spousal death and suicide to the social transformations we associate with modernity: emigration, internal migration, suburbanisation and secularisation

    Project Title for The Moore Institute: A contribution on how to ‘read’ sport and the sport culture

    I am a senior lecturer in sport studies and anthropology at the Faculty of Sport and Education in Brest. My research focuses on the acculturation of sports and on cultural dynamics. During my master, I researched on the wrestling culture in Brittany and Ireland, in relation with the Celtic revival periods. In my PhD dissertation, I have raised the issue of the acculturation of sport by exploring the cultural history of the wrestling styles along the Silk Roads (researches in Mongolia, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Armenia) and in the context of migration between the Northwest Europe and North America (researches in Brittany, Scotland, Ireland, England, Canada and the USA). I aim to develop an interdisciplinary and comparative/cross-cultural approach on the construction of body and sporting cultures. During my research at the Moore, I will research about the social representations on sports and games how they express meanings and how they are ‘read’.
