DCU Creative Writing student wins prestigious short story prize

Huge congratulations to Angela Lyons, student on the MA in Creative Writing, who has won the prestigious Bryan MacMahon Short Story Competition at Listowel Writers’ Week. Enrolled at DCU since September 2018, Angela is among a talented cohort of emerging writers based at the All Hallows campus. Angela has been recognised for her short story, "Grace", which she wrote in the fiction workshop as part of her MA. “Grace” is about a little girl with autism and sees the world in a unique way. Told from her perspective, it is an examination of how some people can disappear from society because they are different. The Bryan MacMahon Award rewards excellence in new short fiction, and is one of the most prestigious prizes at the Listowel festival. Due to ongoing Covid 19 restrictions, this year’s festival was celebrated and marked with a special digital Awards Ceremony. Originally from Bandon, Co. Cork but living in Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath for many years, Angela is a primary school teacher, and has had a lifelong passion for writing. She has been shortlisted for a number of awards but the Bryan MacMahon Award is her first overall win.


TU Dublin Raising Awareness of the Gender and Sex Dimension in Research

Researchers at TU Dublin are leading an international project, Gender for Excellence in Research (GenderEX), to stimulate the integration of the Sex and Gender Dimension in Research in Turkey. Lead by Professor Yvonne Galligan at TU Dublin, with support from the University of Genoa and Lund University, GenderEx will build networks, exchange knowledge and engage best practices to stimulate the integration of the Sex and Gender Dimension in Research Content (SGDRC) in Turkey. For Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) interested in gender studies and gender methodologies, there are few opportunities in Turkey to develop their research skills and capacities. GenderEx aims to further the adoption of SGDRC across multiple scientific disciplines in Turkey and beyond by enhancing the capacity of the Gender and Women’s Studies Research Centre (GWSRC) in Kadir Has University in Istanbul.
