Brenda Mondragón Toledo

Congratulations to Brenda Mondragón Toledo on the publication of her article on Life of a Mexican Student in Ireland

Brenda is from Puebla City and moved to Cork in 2017. She studied a Masters in Sociology of Globalisation and Development at UCC for which she was awarded the Government of Ireland International Scholarship. Afterwards, she loved Ireland so much that she decided to stay and she is currently doing a PhD at UCC in the Department of Sociology & Criminology, and the Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies Department.

Brenda's Master's research was on the problematization of collective intellectual property of indigenous textiles in Guatemala and her current research is a comparative study between Mexico and Ireland in terms of gender violence, using textiles through Participatory Arts Research.
