Dr. Caitríona Ní Laoire is Lecturer in Applied Social Studies and Deputy Director of ISS21. Previously she was Research Fellow and Team Leader on a Marie Curie Excellence Team project, the Migrant Children project, located in the Department of Geography UCC. Her research interests lie in the areas of Irish migration, childhood/youth, return migration, rurality, gender, identities and masculinities. Her research has explored the experiences and identity processes of children who move to Ireland with their return migrant parent(s), focusing in particular on family and peer dynamics, negotiations of inclusion/exclusion and identities, and on relationships with place. This is set within the context of intergenerational relations within families, in particular child-parent relations, and involves the use of children-centred research methods. She joined UCC in 2003, and coordinated the all-island Narratives of Migration and Return research project during 2003-2005, which involved collecting life narratives of Ireland 's recent return migrants.
