    Parasite City



    A philosopher by training, Sharon Meagher has focused on the philosophy of the city, university social responsibility, and global development and sustainability projects. 
    In her scholarly work, her teaching, and in her administrative roles, Meagher has been an advocate for the support and inclusion of students and faculty from under-represented groups.  Her research and teaching on philosophy of the city has focused on social justice issues, including understanding the disparate impacts of globalization and various social and economic urban policies on various populations.  An expert on place-based education, Meagher's focus has been on the ways that we must be attentive to difference and inclusion in community-based teaching and service.
