The project, which will be funded by an £82,000 grant from the Economic and Social Research Council, will explore why Irish LGBT migrants have chosen to move to London and their experiences there. It will focus on notions of home, identity and belonging.
Dr Róisín Ryan-Flood of the Department of Sociology is looking for Irish LGBT migrants who would be willing to be interviewed about their experiences: ‘Metropolitan centres have long been associated with tolerance of sexual diversity and established queer communities and London is a particularly attractive destination for Irish LGBT migrants looking for a more supportive social climate.
‘By exploring the relationship between sexuality, ethnicity, and migration, the study will uncover the ways in which contemporary sexual citizenship, migration and LGBT imaginaries of the metropolis are mutually implicated in complex ways.’
Dr Ryan-Flood and her colleague Fabienne Jung are looking for Irish LGBT migrants who would be willing to be interviewed. Interviews will last approximately one hour and will either take place at the project’s London office or in an environment where the participant would feel most comfortable. All interviews will be strictly confidential and participants will remain anonymous.

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
