Here are the Drug Takers:
Men, Masculinities and Illicit Recreational Drug Use.
My PhD sociologically explored Irish men’s views on, and experiences of, illicit recreational drug use and how this relates to masculinities. During the analysis of the research data, I made a series of artworks as both an analytic means of thinking about the data and as a reflexive process. These artworks (paintings and drawings) have been used to communicate some of the findings from the research and to engage audiences in discussions on the topic.

A selection of this work featured in a paper 'Doing Drugs, Doing Masculinity' presented at the International Conference on Masculinities - Engaging Men and Boys for Gender Equality, The Roosevelt Hotel, New Work, NY on Friday March 6th, 2015.
