We will be adding the details of other distinguished speakers in the coming weeks.
Prof Helen Haste has a long record of research on the interface between science and culture, including work on the moral, political, and social consequences of inter-disciplinarity. Her critical interventions on feminism and humanism have developed out of an important 1993 study, The Sexual Metaphor. She told The Psychologist in 2009: “Innovation – in all fields – happens on the margins. If someone praises your work as ‘mainstream’, be worried.” See the whole interview here.
