Amanda's commitment to her students was recognised twice by the University of Limerick, where she was awarded the Excellent in Teaching Award in 2005 and 2011. Following her service on the executive committee of the Sociological Association of Ireland, she was elected President of the Association for the 2008 term.

Research Interests

My interests centre on the analysis of discursive, classificatory and physical violences, particularly those motivated by prejudice. My current research focuses in particular on gender variant persons' experiences of hostility and access to justice. I am a co-director of both the Hate and Hostility Research Group and the Power, Discourse and Society Research Group at the University of Limerick. My research has been funded by the European Union and the Irish Research Council.
