The Department of Sociology is very pleased to welcome Dr. Áine Ní Léime, a Research Fellow at the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Dr. Ní Léime has been awarded a prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship from the European Union Framework Programme 7 (FP7) to study and conduct research here at CWRU for a two-year period. She will be pursuing a cross-national research project “Gender, Older Workers and the Lifecourse”, analyzing the experiences of Irish and U.S. older workers. This research is supported by a Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship within the 7th European Community Framework Programme. Her book, Ageing Through Austerity: Critical Perspectives from Ireland, co-edited with Kieran Walsh and Gemma M. Carney, has just been published by Policy Press at the University of Bristol: http://www.icsg.ie/ content/icsg-launches-new-book-ageing-through-austerity.
