This was published as Irish Soccer Migrants: a Social and Cultural History by Cork University Press in 2017. He is also co-editor of New Perspectives on Association Football in Irish History (Routledge, 2018).
Dr. Luciana Lolich is a post-doctoral fellow at the School of Social Work and Social Policy in TCD as part of the SoCaTel co-creation project Horizon 2020. Luciana has taught in UCD and DIT and her research interests are in critical marketing, digital technologies and consumer choice in health and education.
Luciana's PhD thesis examined students' experiences and (consumer) choices in higher education in Ireland within the socio-political context of neo-liberalism and the organisational context of the enterprise university. Luciana has worked as research fellow at the Equality Studies Centre at UCD working on the Health Research Board founded project: Social Justice and Palliative Care. Her work centred in critically examining (consumer) choice in palliative care and identifying potential inequalities in the access and delivery of care for patients at the end of life.
