Andrea Hetling named IRW Seminar Fellow

October 2, 2015

Associate Professor Andrea Hetling has been named one of 11 Institute for Research on Women (IRW) Seminar Fellows for the 2015-16 academic year.  This year’s topic is poverty. Her project, “Permanent Supportive Housing as Anti-Poverty Policy for Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence: A Case Study,” uses a longitudinal, qualitative research design to explore residents’ experiences with a new permanent supportive housing program targeted to low-income and previously homeless survivors of intimate partner violence and their children. Based in a feminist perspective, the project considers how survivors can and should participate in shaping and perhaps operating new permanent housing models, and challenges the assumption that survivors are the consumers of services and providers are the shapers and deliverers of services.  As part of the fewllowship, she was awarded a $4,000 research stipend and will be participating in weekly seminar and other events.  More information may be found at
