Being and Space: An Exploration of the Experiences of Women on York University’s Campus
“Being and Space” investigates women’s being on campus through an exploration of women’s phenomenological experiences of comfort and safety, and discomfort and fear on York University’s Keele and Glendon campuses (Toronto, Canada). Additionally, the project explores the impact of those feelings on the behaviors and contributions that the women make to York University’s campus following these experiences. Research questions asked are: How do women experience York University’s campus? How do women’s experiences on campus impact the ways that they contribute to the York University community? How can we improve the experiences that women have on campus? Data was collected through semi-structured interviews with York University community members. This research is located within feminist theory and guided by the experiences of participants. We aim to express women’s unique, subjective feelings and experiences. Further, this project advocates for the welcoming of all women into spaces so that the community can benefit from their valuable contributions.
