Dr Angèle Smith

In January 2015, the Trinity Long Room Hub was delighted to welcome Visiting Research Fellow, Dr Angèle Smith from the University of Northern British Columbia.

Dr Smith is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Northern British Columbia. She was appointed as a Visiting Research Fellow at the Trinity Long Room Hub in collaboration with the School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences. 

Her visit also contributed to Trinity’s Identities in Transformation and Making Ireland research themes.  During her fellowship Dr Smith conducted research on the topic of 'Transforming Identities through Immigrant Integration in Ireland: Multilinguality and Intercultural Spaces'. 

While migration to Ireland is not new, the prevailing discourse regarding the changes ensuant with the migration patterns of the last decade have made Ireland an excellent case for examining the critical issues of interculturalism, shifting senses of belonging and transforming of cultural identities.

For this research project, Dr Smith proposed toexamine the practice and lived experience of policy and services concerning migrants to explore the transformation towards an increasingly intercultural Irish society and the transformation in the lives and identities of new immigrant communities in Ireland.

Dr Smith gave a lecture titled 'Transforming Identities: The Process and Spaces of Intercultural Immigrant Engagements in Ireland' on Monday, 23 March 2015 at 6.15pm.
