Moira O’Shea

Moira O’Shea is a doctoral student in Sociology at the University of Chicago.  Moira is in Bishkek on a Fulbright grant working on research that will be the basis of her doctoral thesis.  Her research focuses on the intersection of politics, memory, and public art.  In Bishkek, Moira’s research will focus on the way in which public art is produced and the narratives that are involved in decision-making processes surrounding the installation and removal of statuary, as well as the way these projects are perceived and interpreted by denizens of the city.

Moira has a M.A. in Social and Cultural Foundations of Education from DePaul University, Chicago, USA, and a B.A. in Philosophy and History of Math and Science from St. John’s College, Maryland, USA.
