RECENT BURSARY WINNERS – REPORTS 

Clare Geraghty, University College Cork

Winner of the Winter 2021 IAAS Postgraduate Research and Travel Bursary

‘I am a researcher and PhD candidate in Latin American Cultural Studies at University College Cork. My research focuses on the work of queer feminist hip hop duo from Cuba, Krudxs Cubensi, to investigate current conversations about body, gender, and coalition formation within feminist studies and activisms. I was very fortunate to receive the Winter 2021 IAAS Postgraduate Research and Travel Bursary, which contributed to a 3-month fieldwork trip to Cuba and the United States. During this trip, I interviewed activists, scholars, and creative practitioners about their visions of the challenges of contemporary feminist movements, and how these trends are reflected in the themes of music of Krudxs Cubensi. In Cuba, I met with activists from the group 11M, and journalists from the independent newspaper, Tremenda Nota, appearing on their podcast, ‘La Potajera’ on International Womens Day 2022. While in the US, I accessed the Gloria Evangelina Anzaldúa Papers at the Benson Collection, University of Texas at Austin, and attended a rally for transgender rights at the Texas State Capitol. A final stop in New York provided the opportunity to delve into the origins of hip hop in its birthplace, as well as queer history, by visiting landmarks such as The Stonewall Inn. This trip has enriched my study immensely, allowing me to form connections with people I would otherwise not have met. I am grateful to the IAAS, the National University of Ireland, and the Department of Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American Studies at UCC for their support.’
