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

Migration is an ever-present topic of debate in the cultural and socio-political landscapes of Trump administration, with the border between Mexico and the United States (US) holding a central place in the unfolding politics and contestations over the meanings of freedom, identity, citizenship, race and nationhood. Héctor Carrillo’s Pathways of Desire: The Sexual Migration of Mexican Gay Men is a welcome engagement with how sexuality informs the motivational structures that prompt gay and bisexual men to migrate from Mexico to the US; their efforts to create new lives, relations and identities for themselves; and ultimately their creation of new maps of meaning and new practices in the US as well as at home. The title of the volume specifies the subjects of Carrillo’s study while aptly pointing to a plurality of journeys that connect different places of departure with multiple points of arrival and to the many individual, cultural and structural forces that co-determine such trajectories.
