Biography

Dympna is Full Professor in the School of Education where she is Head of School and Director of the PhD in Children and Youth Studies.  She is  a founding member of the UCD Childhood and Human Development Research Centre in the Geary Institute.  Her specialist field is sociology, with an interest in the social study of childhoods/children's rights and identities and their educational well-being. She is a nominee of the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs to the National Advisory Council for Children and Young People: Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures (2014 - 2020) and of the Minister of Education as the IUA representative to the Early Years Education Advisory Group.   Her work is informed by a critical social justice perspective and a commitment to education as a key site in the (re)production of children's social and learner identities. Dympna has written extensively on her research and is internationally recognised for her work in the areas of children's voice and citizenship, and migrant children's identities and experiences across home, school and community. A Fulbright scholar in Social Sciences (2013 - 2014) she engaged in transnational research in the area of migrant children in New York Schools.  Her  book 'Immigration and Schooling in the Republic of Ireland (2011) provides a comprehensive overview of theory, policy and practice in this area. Dympna is co-editor (with Wendy Luttrell, CUNY) of a special inter-disciplinary issue  on 'Children and 'value': education in neo-liberal times' published in the journal Children&Society. Other recent book publications include 'New Managerialism in Education: Commercialisation, Care and Gender (Palgrave 2015) co-authored with Kathleen Lynch and Bernie Grummell. 

  
Dympna's doctoral supervision covers areas related to her core research interests  and includes  migrant/minority ethnic children's everyday lives in key sites of family, school and community (from early years through to secondary schools); faith schooling and children's religious/ethnic identities; children's voice, rights and citizenship; children's learner identities and the intersection between family/home and schooling on children's rights and well-being.  She has also worked with PhD students on play in early year settings, children's classed identities in primary school,  adult bullying in schools, whole school evaluation in secondary schools, and parental voice and participation in schooling. She has a strong record of mentoring PhD students and been successful in the award of seven (PHD and post-doctoral) scholarships through the Irish Research Council and the Dept of Children and Youth Affairs. She also supports her PhD graduates through lead authored publications.   Dympna has been the recipient of a Marie Curie Fellowship to  NOSEB, the internationally renowned Norwegian Centre for Child Research. She is currently working on two European funded projects on Roma/Traveller Children and Youth; and supporting equality in teaching and learning in DEIS primary schools.  An additional project - funded by the Norwegian Research Council focuses on an inter-generational exploration of knowledge, identity and education in coastal communities.  She is a partner in an EU funded Children's Rights Academic Network (CREAN) and was previoulsy a member of the management committee of the EU COST A19 Action 'Children's Welfare'.  She has been invited expert reviewer for the European Social Fund, the Dutch Programme Council for Educational Research and the Croation Scientific Foundation.  She has also published in the areas of Gender and Education, School Leadership and international comparative studies of Educational Effectiveness and Teacher pedagogies.  A former  General Editor of 'Irish Educational Studies' (Routledge/Taylor and Francis; ISI listed) Dympna is invited member of  the  editorial boards of leading journals in her field including British Journal of Sociology of Education ; Children & Society;  Race, Ethnicity and Education; and the journal Childhood.   She is  reviewer for over 28 international Journals related to her field and has been invited external examiner for PhD theses with a migrant/childhood focus in Australia, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Ireland and the UK.  She has also been invited as external examiner to international master and PhD programmes including the M.Phil in Childhood Studies at the Norwegian Centre for Child Research [NOSEB] .

Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

For me teaching is storytelling . I introduce students to a world of unknown characters and scripts, to the 'sociological imagination'. I encourage them to engage reflectively and playfully with this world, to learn the language, think through the concepts and develop insights that re/frame their practice.
