21 Dec 2015 - 15:30

Last week, Elena Moore discussed the findings of her manuscript on Divorce, Families and Emotion Work. The findings were presented at The Geary Institute at the University College Dublin, hosted by Dorren Mc Mahon. The second seminar took place at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth and was hosted by The Department of Applied Social Studies & The Department of Sociology with Dr. Jane Gray acting as the discussant. The qualitative longitudinal research which follows the lives of a group of 40 separated parents over a 10 year period presents the work involved in sustaining family life as separated parents remain deeply connected and committed to each other.
