Identity, Diversity & Values

Our sense of identity and our understanding of national, ethnic, gender, religious, and class issues shape how we live as citizens in harmony or conflict.  Powerful forces such as globalisation, conflict and technological advancement are changing these notions in unforeseen ways. 

Researchers at Maynooth University seek to understand the consequences of how human identity is portrayed in a changing world.  

Our research examines critical debates in contemporary women’s writing and in gender, performativity and play across several languages and cultures.  We focus on philosophical approaches to diversity, tolerance, plurality and ‘the other’, and use the concepts of diversity and identity to explore these developments, their expression, and their meaning for society.
