UCD School of Education Professor, Dympna Devine, Awarded Funding for Research on Coastal Communities


Professor Dympna Devine, UCD School of Education, has secured funding through the Research Council of Norway  for an international three generational study of coastal communities. The project addresses education, knowledge and identity formation among girls and boys across three generations (as perceived by youth, parents and grandparents) of diverse ethnic backgrounds in coastal communities in five countries. The overall aim is to provide a deeper knowledge base about the shifting and dynamic interplay between education (non-formal and formal), society and working life, bridging past-present-future in cross-national contexts (contact Professor Dympna Devine: dympna.devine@ucd.ie)
