Flyer for the event "Gendered Perspectives on Urban Liveability: Gaps and Opportunities"

“Gendered Perspectives on Urban Liveability: Gaps and Opportunities,” funded by the Urban Studies Foundation under the Seminar Series Award, will be held virtually on 15th July 2024 at 4 PM (IST) via Zoom.

This seminar aims to critically examine the influence of gender on urban liveability, addressing the gaps and exploring potential improvements for more inclusive, equitable, and safe urban environments. Featuring expert speaker Flora Szkordilisz, an Architect and Spatial Planner, and coordinated by Dr Sneha Krishnan and Dr Surabhi Mehrotra, the event will also include presentations by early career researchers Devika AJ (focusing on gender-inclusive tourism planning), Ayushi Tiwari (improving gender-inclusive urban public spaces), Aarti Duhan (exploring the gendered impacts of conflict on mental health, specifically the Manipur ethnic violence in 2023), and Rishika Deshmukh (examining the intersections of maternal mental health and protracted conflict, with a case study of Kashmiri women). Participants will engage in deliberations on future scope using participatory web tools to foster meaningful dialogue and contribute to shaping the future of urban liveability from a gendered perspective.

"It is not an overstatement to say that the USF Fellowship was invaluable in relation to both my career development and the advancement of my research around urban politics. The USF Fellowship provided me with an opportunity to be part a diverse, open and stimulating academic milieu; to have the space and time to focus on research, and to pave the way for future academic research development."
