Global Education Colloquium Series presents:

New Ways of Evaluating the Impact of Women’s Education in a Global Context

Please note: due to the COVID-19 crisis, this colloquium will only be available via Zoom. To log on, please visit https://www.zoom.us/j/7028598216.

Women’s education is widely heralded as a key factor in improving health and development, especially in the Global South. Yet despite the fact that it is one of the most well-correlated aspects of wellbeing, there is still much we do not know about why and how education matters. Dr. Burroway presents two studies that make us think more deeply about creative ways to measure the effects of women’s education in global research. The first study (with Andrew Hargrove) combines multi-level modeling with geospatial data techniques to examine the effects of individual and community levels of women’s education on child immunization rates in Nigeria. The second study (with Kristen Shorette) uses quantile regression analysis to better understand cross-national disparities in infant mortality across 154 countries from 1970-2015. A full description of the presentation may be found at https://drexel.edu/soe/resources/event-series/gec/May-20-2020-event/.

Dr. Rebekah Burroway is an Associate Professor and the Graduate Program Director in the Department of Sociology at Stony Brook University. She is particularly interested in the ways in which women are constrained from fully participating in their communities and the subsequent impact this has on households and societies at large.
