virtualvisits

Due to this campus’ COVID-19 response all of our students, and most of our faculty and staff, are not on campus for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. We invite you to visit us virtually. Click here for more information on virtual campus visits. 

 

During the ongoing developments related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak it is our intent to keep the School moving forward while protecting the health and welfare of our students, faculty, and staff.

Here are a few changes we have adopted.

 

Deana McDonagh was invited to participate with Komal Faiz, Adilah Yong, and Andree Woodcock on the book chapter "Ten Stages of Women: Challenges Facing Women in Travel." This work is about gender poverty in relation to transport with a focus on Pakistan and Malaysia and will be part of the book Design for Global Challenges that will be published by Routledge.

The abstract provides more detail about this chapter: "Addressing Sustainable Development Goal 5: Achieving gender equality and empowerment of women and girls in transport, this chapter takes a holistic approach to exploring mobility challenges women face in Pakistan and Malaysia. Ethnographic and empathic approaches were used to understand women’s mobility at different stages of their life. The '10 stages of women' framework presents a contrast to the normative '7 ages of men' model, showing the interrelationship of transport, age and gender. The framework was used to develop system maps to reveal a more holistic and actionable representation of the barriers and enablers faced by women in Pakistan and Malaysia, pinpointing areas for action."
