24.11.2014 Griffin – Balancing Agendas: Social Sciences and Humanities in Europe

Griffin, G., 2006. Balancing Agendas: Social Sciences and Humanities in Europe. Arts and Humanities in Higher Education, 5, pp. 229-241.

Text chosen by Melehat Nil Gulari

The paper I selected for the reading group on the 24th of November is from Gabriele Griffin, who is a professor at the Centre for Women’s Studies, the University of York. The article, based on the talk she gave at a conference of the European Commission, argues about the centrality of humanities research in culture in relation to interdisciplinary research and collaboration. I felt that not only does she focus on an important and relevant topic for the art and design field, but she also presents some examples and concepts that deserve further discussion.

    Thanks to Nil for a really interesting reading and to everyone for a great discussion today.

    Here’s two interesting current articles in relation to what we talked about: one about engineering and the arts (as mentioned), and another about Dostoevsky and ideology (bear with me, it is relevant…)
