    Research Statement

    Dr Lauren Dempster is a Lecturer in the School of Law.  

    Lauren's research is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing on the fields of transitional justice, criminology, law, anthropology, and politics in particular. Her research interests include 'dealing with the past' in Northern Ireland, 'disappearances' and transitional responses to 'disappearing,' the construction of victimhood, victim mobilisation, and themes of agency, voice, silence, and memory.

    Lauren is Co-Investigator on a DfE-GCRF pilot project exploring the representation of victims and victimhood at sites of so-called 'dark tourism.'
