Nancy Tuana to lead a new NSF grant–the Megapolitan Coastal Transformation Hub (MACH) project

Please join us in congratulating Nancy Tuana on a new NSF grant that she will lead at Penn State – the Megapolitan Coastal Transformation Hub (MACH) project. This $19.9 million grant links more than a dozen universities (with Rutgers as the lead) to pursue a five-year study through the NSF’s Coastlines and People program. The MACH project will conduct research that supports the development of climate-resilient decision-making frameworks to equitably support coastal communities. In addition to facilitating interdisciplinary science, MACH will link researchers with coastal stakeholders and decision-makers to facilitate the co-development of dynamic adaptation policy pathways for equitably navigating a deeply uncertain future.

It is not often that we hear about feminist philosophers being funded by the NSF, so this is particularly exciting! The interdisciplinary work that we do in WGSS is clearly important on so many levels. Many congratulations, Nancy!
