Dangerous Women Project launches crowdfunding campaign for new book
Thu 22 August 2019
An initiative by the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) which ran from 2016 to 2017 has launched a crowdfunding campaign for the publication of a new book.
The book, which shares its title with the ‘Dangerous Women’ project, will bring together 50 pieces from the project, including everything from biographies and essays to poems and cartoons. Many of the works to be included in the book are by academics from the University of Edinburgh and IASH alumnae.
The project was inaugurated by Professor Jo Shaw during her tenure as Director of the IASH. It accepted submissions from women of diverse backgrounds and identities that discussed the question “What does it mean to be a ‘dangerous woman’?” These were published daily between International Women’s Day 2016 and International Women’s Day 2017, the result being a repository of individual responses to this question, delving into history, the arts, science, religion, and many other areas.
