Ann Browne was born October 18, 1949 in Strabane, Northern Ireland, and died of cancer on January 29, 2000. She read Spanish at Queen’s University Belfast and graduated in the early 1970s. She then took an MA at London’s Institute of Latin American Studies, before visiting Latin America. She was inspired by Latin American Literature and the Northern Ireland civil rights movements. She fought for the rights of Latin American miners, was a Trade Unionist, and supported Chilean refugees. She moved to Brussels, where she died in 2000.
To honour her memory and spirit the Browne family set up the Ann Browne Masters Scholarship in Conflict Transformation and Social Justice to commemorate her life and work.
One Ann Browne Scholarship is available for academic year 2020-21. The Scholarship will cover tuition fees for one applicant for full-time study on the MA in Conflict Transformation and Social Justice, starting in September 2020.
