posted at 3:42 pm Wed Jul 17th, 2013 by (WherezIt_Staff)

 
 
It's as easy as one, two, three:
  1. Bring a lunch & grab a seat;
  2. Listen to a 10-15 min introduction by the discussion leaders; and
  3. Participate in a conversation about critical issues in transportation.
Please join us for lively conversation at one (or all!) of our Brown Bag discussions. All discussions are on Fridays from 12:00 to 1:00 in Decision Theater, Farrell Hall. The building is accessible and directions can be found here.  Remote access capabilities will also be provided.  Directions on how to link to the presentations or view recordings of previous presentations can be found on the Brown Bag Website.

We hope to see you this summer!

Upcoming Brown Bags
July 26th - Refugees and Transportation in Vermont: Travel Behavior and Critical Questions based on Gender, Age and Transportation Hierarchies
**NOTE: THIS BROWNBAG WILL START AT 11:30AM**

Hosted By: Glenn McRae of the Transportation Research Center
Discussion leader: Pablo Bose, Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at UVM

Dr. Bose will introduce and outline the findings from his most recent study of the ways in which mobility and access to transportation impact specific parts of the Vermont refugee population, especially women, children and the elderly.  The study found that there are indeed some significant differences based on age and gender of travel patterns, choices and options for men, women and seniors in the newly resettled refugee community. Several key themes also emerged out of this research and interviews that highlight the experience of refugee women and seniors in Vermont with regard to transportation. These include the impact of the climate and distance to destinations as important factors in their transportation choices, the sense of opportunities both gained and lost as a result of the mode of travel, the significance of adequate transport for achieving better resettlement outcomes, the challenges of car ownership, the aspiration for car ownership, and the sense of dependency that emerges out of gendered and age-related limitations on mobility.
