The Nationwide Irish Music Industry Research (NIMIR) Project -  an open access, artist centred, independent investigation of the relationship between gender and image management in the commercial music industries in Ireland. Led by journalist and academic researcher, Yvonne Kiely, and shared publicly on www.lazerguidedreporter.com

I will continue to publish free to access research articles on my website as the NIMIR Project continues. Self funded, but open to any donations, which will go towards travel costs for interviews, website subscriptions, and many, many cups of coffee.

Thank you so much,

Credentials and unlimited passions:
  • 2017: I completed my research into the representation of artists on the covers of Hot Press and Rolling Stone, and interviews with women in Ireland's music industry, as part of my MA at Griffith College Dublin.

  • 2018: Having decided to share the findings, I began publishing articles about gender and visibility in the music industry on my website (see link above). 
  • In the same year, I presented this research at the Annual Critical Media Literacy Conference at Dublin Institute of Technology.

  • 2019: The NIMIR Project was launched - check it out here.
  • I presented the music magazine research at the Gender Dynamics in the Music Industry Symposium at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. 
  • This research has also been accepted by editors in the UK, to be included in a book entitled Media Narratives in Popular Music, published by Bloomsbury Academic (2020). 
  • The research continues with interviews in Ireland and more magazine analysis
