CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- 'Negotiating Gendered Spaces' will be the topic of the next CROW Forum lecture at noon, Monday, March 7, in the Presidential Room in Maucker Union, on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

Gowri Betrabet-Gulwadi, UNI assistant professor of interior design, will introduce how the field of environment-behavior studies has explored spaces segregated by gender that reinforce gender stratification in society. She will discuss the conceptualization and study of gendered spaces using architectural and urban examples, and introduce recent research that examines how these spaces are negotiated.

Admission is free and open to the public.

The CROW (Current Research on Women) Forum series is sponsored by UNI's Graduate Program in Women's Studies.
