The Post-doc position is funded through the SSHRC Partnership Project Urbanization, Gender, and the Global South: A Transformative Knowledge Network (GenUrb) based at the City Institute at York University, Toronto. Situated in the dynamic 21st century context of urbanization, this project aims to (i) advance theorization of urbanization through comparative research, using a five-year ethnographic investigation across cities of women’s everyday place-making strategies through waged work (in production) and their activities in their households, communities and cities (in social reproduction); and to (ii) advance analyses of the extent to which policy initiatives impact upon women’s lives, particularly Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 5, on ‘gender equality’, and 11 on ‘sustainable cities.’ To do so the partnership has been conducting research and public education in eight cities in lower-middle income countries in the global South: Cairo, Egypt; Cochabamba, Bolivia; Georgetown, Guyana; Ibadan, Nigeria; Delhi & Mumbai, India; Ramallah, Palestine; and Shanghai, China.
