Yasmine El Hamamsy - Blog 4: An International Education

Post type: 
Blog post

Since I have been at MSRI, my main role has been acting as a kind of administrative assistant to the Sahabat Support Centre School (SSC) and the School Manager. I print books, make curriculums, make student lists, help organize activities, and educational support to address student needs. By far though, the most wonderful parts of the position are the frequent visits next door to the school itself.

Bridget Woods - Blog 4: Are women's rights contextual?

Post type: 
Blog post

Women's rights are such a large, complex, interpretive and convoluted topic of discussion, yet one that is frequently debated and rigorously defined. As the world consists of 50% women, it is no surprise that rights that effect women's movement, dress, education, and economic work and activity are a hot topic for discussion and debate.

Siobhan Davis - Podcast 2: The People in Kuala Lumpur and their Perceptions of Canada

Post type: 
Blog post

In this podcast, I ask people I know who live in Kuala Lumpur the same questions I asked the clients of MSRI. As the locals and 'expats' of Kuala Lumpur have a very different legal and positional status but are sharing the same space, it is interesting to see how the answers are similar and how they are different when specific questions are asked.
