Aisling Hoban, Technological University Dublin, BA winner 2021
Valerie Ganon, PhD, Lecturer in Advertising, Technological University Dublin
"To achieve a 1st class honours degree and thesis grade is an excellent achievement, but to do that in the context of an overnight locked down pandemic end of academic year, is really on another level. Even more, Aisling had the insight and initiative to turn the lockdown into a context driving her research work. I am delighted that her thesis is getting recognition on a European level, and the wider audience it deserves".
