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.
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.
