Background

Dr. Kathy Glavanis-Grantham read history at Occidental College, Los Angeles, where she developed an interest in the Middle East as part of her undergraduate curriculum. Pursuing that interest, she undertook postgraduate studies in the Department of Near Eastern Studies, Princeton University, New Jersey, and completed an MA in 1971.

In order to develop further her Arabic language skills and to deepen her knowledge of the area, she went to the American University in Cairo where she studied the language, literature and culture of the contemporary Arab world, with a particular focus on Egypt. In the second and third years while at AUC, she began to study anthropology and sociology and left to pursue a Ph.D. in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, University of Hull, England in 1974. She returned to Egypt in order to carry out fieldwork in the Nile Delta for two years, looking at the survival strategies of small Egyptian peasant households.

In 1977, she returned to the University of Hull where she began her teaching career, undertaking tutorial work in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. She then spent four years at the University of Durham, England, where she worked as a specialist librarian for the Middle East collection, taught in the Department of Anthropology, as well as in the Department of Arabic Studies. In 1982, she undertook a teaching post in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Birzeit University, Palestine. Here she taught a wide range of anthropology and sociology courses, focusing on development issues, particularly rural development, and on the study of gender relations.

While in Palestine, she was a member of a number of development projects that focused on developing collective solutions to socio-economic problems in the context of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. She was also a member of the advisory committee for the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights in Jerusalem. In 1991, she began lecturing in the Department of Sociology, U.C.C. and has acted as one of the co-ordinators for the MA programme in the Sociology of Development and Globalisation since 1992.


Interests

As is evident from the above, her interests have ranged across a number of disciplines, including history, literature, sociology and anthropology. Much of her earlier study and writing was an attempt to look at literary representations historically and socially. She developed her long term interest in the study of gender relations while at Princeton University where she wrote her MA thesis on the depiction of modern Egyptian women in the short stories of Nagib Mahfuz, who was later to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. While still in Cairo, she first studied urban sociology, but then became interested in rural society, and went on to focus on this area for her Ph.D. research. This field has dominated much of her academic life. She developed an interest in trying to understand the impact of capitalism on peasant societies, and in particular the nature and extent of non-capitalist relations in the reproduction of small peasant households. This required an examination of development policies and the global economy, again, two central concerns of her research over many years. While in Palestine, she pursued these interests in rural society, development and gender relations in this new context, both geographically and politically. She carried out research on the intersection of gender and nationalism in the context of a nation struggling for independence from an occupying power. After moving to Ireland, she developed an interest in the comparative analysis of gender relations within the context of settler colonialism as represented by South Africa and the North of Ireland. She undertook research in the summer of 1995, looking at the intersection of feminism, nationalism, and gender identities in South Africa, interviewing a range of women activists and academics, primarily in the Durban area.

The field of the sociology/anthropology of health is a comparatively recent academic interest for her. During the academic year, 1998/99, while on study leave she began to undertake an investigation into the sociology of the health, and more specifically the sub field of the sociology of death, dying and bereavement. Part of that year was spent in the collection of primary data from Palestine. Out of this research interest she developed a new third year module, The Sociology of Death, Dying and Bereavement, which ran for the first time in the academic year, 2001-02. Likewise, she co-organised with Gearoid O Crualaoich, Department of Folklore and Barra O Donnabhain, Department of Archaeology, U.C.C. an interdisciplinary conference held in November 2001 entitled Death, Dying and Bereavement: Irish Perspectives. Another conference, building on the first, entitled Talking Death: Narratives of Illness and Bereavement was held in October 2004, organised by the same three staff members.

Since October 2002, when she joined Health Action International, an international NGO that promotes rational drug use and consumer interests, she began to embark on research with Orla O'Donovan on the political and cultural influence of the transnational pharmaceutical industry in Ireland. This initial research was presented at the 2nd Population Health Summer School 4-6 September 2003 at UCC (see below). Together with Orla O'Donovan, she organised a conference entitled Health, Democracy and the Globalised Pharmaceutical Industry: Exploring the Politics of Drug Regulation Internationally and in Ireland which took place in September 2004 and which coincided with Health Action International's AGM.

Growing out of her interest in the political and cultural influence of the transnational pharmaceutical industry in Ireland, she has recently embarked on research that examines patient organisations in Ireland (see below).

Research Projects
Currently working on two books. One is an updating of my book Crime in Ireland published in 1996. The other is a book entitled High Anxiety: from the fear of crime to global insecurity. This will offer a critical examination of whether fear has become a predominant social emotion and a significant political issue. It will start from the fear of crime and extend to consider whether such fear has, post 9/11, expanded to become a form of global insecurity.

Current teaching
Sociology of Mass Media at undergraduate and post-graduate level, Sociology of Deviance at second and third year undergraduate level, teach at both second and third year levels in research methods courses.

Dr Tracey Skillington is Lecturer in Sociology at University College Cork, and co-ordinator of First Year teaching at the Department. She is currently a Co-Editor of the Irish Journal of Sociology, official journal of the Sociological Association of Ireland, published by Manchester University Press. Apart from her role as co-ordinator of, and lecturer teaching in the first year programme, she also teaches research methods, as well as the sociology of health and illness to second and third year students. She has an extensive history of European social research, having worked on several international research projects funded by various EU research programmes. Her publications reflect her ongoing interest in the critical tradition of research, in particular the application of new qualitative methods to ‘the cosmopolitan condition’ (such as frame analysis, narrative, and discourse analysis), to enduring and emerging fields of inquiry within sociology, including human rights in contemporary global perspective, studies in collective trauma, genocide, and its aftermath, fundamentalism and terror, global capitalism and the future of democracy, as well health and social inequality.
