About the Author

Dr. Eoin Devereux is Senior Lecturer in Sociology at University of Limerick and Adjunct Professor in Contemporary Culture at the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland.

He is the author of the academic best-seller Understanding The Media now in its 3rd edition (SAGE, 2014), co-editor of David Bowie: Critical Perspectives (with Aileen Dillane and Martin J. Power, Routledge, 2015) and co-editor of Morrissey: Fandom, Representations and Identities (with Dillane and Power, Intellect, 2012).

Eoin is a founding member of two research clusters at UL namely the 'Power, Discourse and Society Research Cluster' and the 'Popular Music and Popular Culture Research Cluster'. In 2014, he co-organised the Limerick City of Culture music legacy project The Pigtown Fling with sonic artist Dr. John Samuel Greenwood and Noel Hogan of The Cranberries. He was also recently selected by SAGE to present a series of short video lectures on a range of themes including the work of Stuart Hall; Fandom; Ideology and Media Representations of Poverty for their Media and Communications tutorials and case study videos.

He tweets daily as @drdevereux and in his spare time DJ's, organises an event called Manchester Night, gardens and writes short fiction. His most recently published flash fiction story 'Mrs Flood' came second in the RTE Radio 1 '100 Words, 100 Books' competition and was published by O'Brien Press in 2014.
