Project title:

Women's experiences of migration and work in the architecture profession: a post-colonial feminist analysis of female migrant architects from the Commonwealth living and working in Britain.

Project description: 

This research intends to contribute to the literature on professionalisation and closure of architecture by examining the intersections of gender and race and migration – an intersection hitherto underexamined in the context of architecture. In terms of management practice, this study can inform female architects about strategies for achieving better socio-economic objectives, through a better understanding of how gender, race and migration-related issues impact their professional identities, and how to devise actions to mitigate such challenges.
