Staff share expertise and are commended in the mediaThursday 26 March 2015
A new book, a trio of accolades and a World War I exhibition have helped bring Liverpool Hope staff to the attention of the media over the past week.
The Irish Post (20th March) covered the launch of Dr Sonja Tiernan’s new book, Sexual Politics in Modern Ireland, which she edited with Dr Diane Urquhart and Dr Jennifer Redmond. The book, published by Irish Academic Press, explores issues such as prostitution, sex education, homosexuality, the patriarchal system and abortion, as well as Ireland’s relationship between the Church and State.
Dr Evan Jean Lawrence, Professional Tutor in International Relations, was also interviewed on by BBC Radio 5 Live about the recent arrest of three Syria-bound British teenagers in Turkey.
Dr David Bolt, Associate Professor, Faculty of Education and Director of the Centre for Culture & Disability Studies appeared in the Liverpool Echo, which reported on his three accolades in twelve months, including his nomination for the Positive Role Model award at the National Diversity Awards.
University Art Curator Susan Beck, Senior Lecturer in English Dr Guy Cuthbertson and Graduate Intern Georgia Kane-Frazer also appeared on Bay TV Liverpool discussing the exhibition of World War I medals, memorials and sculptures created by Edward Carter Preston.
The exhibition, by permission of the Liverpool Hope University Carter Preston Foundation, runs until 17th April at the Sheppard-Worlock Library. Dr Cuthbertson spoke about the importance of remembrance, whilst Susan talked through the collection, and Georgia discussed her role in helping to put the exhibition together and why it is important for young people to engage with Carter Preston's work.
