The Institute

Where does the Dangerous Women Project come from?

The University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) is an ideal venue to develop a digital platform such as the Dangerous Women Project.

Institutes for Advanced Studies located in universities represent one of the spaces in which the ‘outside’ and the ‘inside’ meet each other in different types of reflective encounters. IASH supports open dialogue between the Fellows who visit the University under its various programmes, colleagues in academic schools and departments in Edinburgh and elsewhere, and wider civil society. It provides an international, interdisciplinary and autonomous space for discussion and debate.

The Dangerous Women Project raises some challenging questions about the nature of our societies in the past and in the future. It provokes controversy and debate, and raise new questions. At IASH, we have curated this material carefully, being respectful of the different voices speaking and the positions they articulate.
