Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

In looking at how economic, political, sociocultural, and epistemological transformations are coterminous with notions and practices of gender and sexuality, this entry highlights women's generative role in the production of radical or reformist changes and examines the operations of power that derailed or subsumed women's social agendas within the new socioeconomic, cultural, and political regimes. The timeline of this analysis includes watershed moments in the history of the region such as the Russian Revolution, the end of World War II in 1945, the fall of state-socialist regimes in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and of the Soviet Union in 1989, and extends across the European Union accession years for 10 CEE countries up until the global financial crises of the late 2000s and early 2010s.
