Creative-Practice PhD Title: 'Let Us Be Seen: Analysing and Documenting the Development of Grassroots Feminism in Belfast'. Through an oral history approach, interviewing numerous people in Education, Arts and Activist organisations in Belfast a feature documentary film and accompanying research is being gathered on ways in which feminism is operating on a grassroots level in Belfast currently and in recent years. There is a comparative look at Peace Process era grassroots feminism in this research and an exploration of the nexus of feminist and queer identity politics. A current investigation into how intersectionality operates in practice versus theory is also underway.
