Ciara Power is a PhD researcher in anthropology and ethnomusicology at Queen's University Belfast. Her project documents and connects experiences of electronic music in Belfast and Dublin. She is interested in learning about aspects that might affect, help, or limit creative workers and fans when working and attending events in electronic music, particularly in the age of COVID-19. Social identities such as gender, race, and sexuality are important themes in this project, and how they relate to broader socio-economic issues in the night-time economies in both cities. By considering processes of inclusion and exclusion, and analysing themes of identity, gender, and intersectionality, Ciara hopes to bring new insights into how social interactions in dance music culture have changed over time.
