Economics Assistant Professor Shreyasee Das has recently published several articles on the status of women in India.
"Intergenerational effects of improving women's property rights: evidence from India," coauthored with Nayana Bose (Scripps College), has been published in Oxford Development Studies. It examines the intergenerational impact of women's inheritance rights.
"Women grow as much as 80% of India's food—but its new farm laws overlook their struggles," written with Bansari Kamdar (recently awarded an MA in Economics from UMass-Boston) analyzes how current farm bills in India would affect women.
Dr. Das has also co-organized a session with Seth Gitter (Towson University) for the upcoming Southern Economic Association Meetings. This session will advise non-tenure track (NTT) faculty on how to navigate an academic career. It will provide a space and support for NTTs who are often left out of important conversations and may not be able to visualize their academic path. The virtual session will take place on Saturday, November 20 at 10 a.m. CST (Session number 1.B.36).
