Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the John Hume Institute for Global Irish Studies

  • Lehner, Stefanie (Recipient)

Prize: Fellowship awarded competitively


I was awarded a two year postdoctoral research fellowship at the John Hume Institute for Global Irish Studies at University College Dublin, with affiliations to the School of Politics and the School of English, Drama and Film, for an independent research project on the performative dimensions of reconciliation in Northern Ireland and South Africa. This project was part of the research strand ‘The Irish experience of conflict resolution in a British-Irish and global context’ of the HEA funded project ‘Global Ireland: Transforming the Study of Ireland’. My main duties consist of conducting and disseminating new research via journal publications, conference presentations, seminars, and guest lectures. Other responsibilities include the organisation of conferences, reading groups, seminar series, workshops, field trips, and the annual summer school.
