Gillian Wylie features in community radio series on women in academia

Dublin's NearFM is broadcasting a podcast series 'Lifting the Lid' about women in academia. The series of five interviews is the idea of Dr Shirely Graham who wanted to bring the voices of women academics to the fore - as a contribution to feminist praxis and an inspiration to women who have been thinking about becoming more involved in feminist activism, research, or engaging with third level institutions for the first time. Shirely, who conducts the interviews, is an academic herself, with expertise in the field of gender and peacebuilding.

The interviews will be broadcast on Near fm at 3.30pm on the next five Fridays and available on their website at
