Book Success for Dr Jane Neal-Smith

Faculty of Business & Law academic leader Dr Jane Neal-Smith co-edits and is a contributing author for new aviation book.

Date: 22/08/2014

Dr Jane Neal-Smith, academic leader within the Guildhall Faculty of Business & Law, has been working with colleagues in Canada and Australia as co-editor and contributing author of Absent Aviators, Gender Issues in Aviation.

The book consolidates a diverse range of issues from a number of authors from Australia, Austria, the United States, Canada, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Each of the chapters is research-based and aims to present a broad picture of gender issues in aviation, gendered workplaces and sociology, underpinned by sound theoretical perspectives and methodologies. The book will prove to be a valuable contribution to the debates on women in masculine-oriented occupations and a practical guide for the aviation industry to help overcome a looming pilot shortage.

If you are interested in Aviation please take a look at our undergraduate Aviation Management BSc (Hons) course page, where you can find out more about studying with us starting this September.
