Meet our Authors: Miriam Doran – January 2017

Miriam Doran is a Lecturer in Education at Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, Ireland. Her research interests include student educational experience, pedagogy and science education at primary, secondary and third level. Miriam previously worked in two national teacher support services in Ireland with responsibility for continuous professional development of primary and post-primary science teachers. Prior to that, she taught at post-primary level for over twenty years.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Miriam has authored An Ethnography in an Irish Girls Secondary School: Exploring how Hegemony and Power Mediate Agency and Structure, which explores the cultural experiences of a group of Irish 6th year girls and is based on an ethnographic study. This book is adapted from a PhD thesis and is Miriam’s inaugural academic book publication.

Miriam describes the experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:

Doran.pngFollowing completion of my PhD in education, I received advice from an experienced academic to consider Cambridge Scholars Publishing, due to their interest in helping early career researchers revise their doctoral thesis and bring it through to publication. As this was an inaugural book publication, I was grateful for the prompt and professional support and advice that was readily available when required. Cambridge Scholars were more than happy to facilitate my partial personalised design of the jacket and collaborated effectively on visual adjustments of the front cover during this process. I was involved throughout all aspects of the publishing process and have learned a considerable amount for future projects. I believe a reliable testimony to any company is the quality of the product. I am regularly complemented on the quality and finish of the book, and would wholeheartedly recommend Cambridge Scholars to other prospective authors.”
