Launch of IRC/ESRC funded RIFNET network led by Dr Maeve O'Riordan (UCC) and Dr Leanne Calvert (University of Hertfortshire)
Irish gender history and the family For too long, understandings of the family have been constrained by an over-emphasis on the 'traditional' unit. Comprised of a heterosexual married couple and their offspring within one household, this understanding is, and has always been, but one expression of the family. The RIFNET research network aims to push the boundaries of existing knowledge to create a new model that captures the broad diversity and messy realities of Irish family life.
