Leading US academics to guide Newcastle’s work in social change

Two leading gender and women’s studies academics from the US will visit Newcastle this week to guide and inform the University’s work in the fields of social change and gender equality.

Professors Carolyn Sachs and Ann Tickameyer from the prestigious Penn State University will share their expertise with University of Newcastle researchers, and contribute to the establishment of a Gender, Leadership and Social Sustainability (GLASS) research unit in Newcastle.

University of Newcastle Professor of Social Work, Margaret Alston, said the unit would focus on four areas: gender and climate change, violence against women, leadership, and social sustainability.

We are looking forward to building links between the GLASS research unit at the University of Newcastle and the Women and Agriculture unit at Penn State.

Collaborating on large-scale cross-country research will also be discussed at the meeting, as we are very keen to establish postgraduate student exchanges between the two universities,” Professor Alston said.
