The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences yesterday held its second annual AHSS Postgraduate Research Conference. The conference highlights the research of the Faculty’s postgraduate students, and gives students the opportunity to present in a real conference environment.
The 2016 winner of the Dean’s Prize for best Poster was Zach Roche (Department of Sociology) for his poster ‘Life after debt: the engagement and non-engagement of debtors with the insolvency service of Ireland’. Posters by Orla Banks and John Hogan (both from Politics and Public Administration) were also commended by the judges.
