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.
