Community, Urban Futures and Faith Belonging in Children's Art

The ISS21 Children & Young People Research Cluster invite you to:


Community, Urban Futures and Faith Belonging in Children's Art


Professor Anna Hickey-Moody

Tuesday 11th June

River Room, The Glucksman, 11am-1pm



In this talk Professor Hickey-Moody draws on data from the 'Interfaith Childhoods' research project, which in part aims to generate and document religious children’s perspectives on their worlds. This ethnographic project develops non-ideological, vernacular and material forms of knowledge about religion. As part of a broader research programme, the multi-sited ethnographic project includes arts workshops with children in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, as well as in London and Manchester, UK. The social and political settings of these comparable and dominantly Anglo, diversifying contexts are often dominated by negative discourses in relation to Islam. Professor Hickey- Moody will examine identity and faith belonging in collaboratively created images of urban futures made by the children.


Dr. Karl Kitching, Director of EDI and Lecturer, School of Education UCC will introduce Professor Hickey-Moody and also share some insights from his forthcoming book Childhood, Religion and School Injustice, which focuses on questions of access to public schooling and deep engagement with plurality in childhood in Ireland and internationally.

Anna Hickey-Moody is Professor of Media and Communication at RMIT University, Australia, an Australian Research Council Future Fellow, 2017-2021 and Vice Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellow.
