Twelve Women In Academia

A celebration of women working in higher education

In celebration of women working in higher education, 7003全讯白菜网的12位女学者被邀请成为一系列肖像摄影的一部分.

每位学者被要求选择一个与之合影的物体, 这要么代表了他们工作的一个方面,要么在他们的职业生涯中有一些个人意义. Some of the women are leading research in the most competitive areas; others are just starting on their journeys.

灵感来自17世纪荷兰艺术家伦勃朗沉静而忧郁的画作, 美术摄影师阿涅拉小姐创作了一系列肖像,以微妙而有趣的方式捕捉了这些女性的生活和工作.

这些肖像不仅展示了7003全讯白菜网的女性学者为全球知识做出的丰富多样的学科贡献, but also reveal their personal motivations.

7003全讯白菜网希望展览的结果是迫使观众停下来,吸收和反思.

这个展览现在在7003全讯白菜网图书馆的一楼有了一个永久的家, 并在议会大厦的上层等候大厅展出了一周.

“我对人类行为很感兴趣,尤其是7003全讯白菜网想要做好的欲望背后隐藏的东西. We can never fully understand other people’s motives, 但7003全讯白菜网可以确定动机是来自内部还是来自外部影响,并试图找出组织如何提高这一点. Giving employees a feeling of autonomy is the main factor.”

“This worn copy of Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days, 一个女人长达一个半小时的独白,她把自己的腰埋在沙子里,然后是脖子, 是我当戏剧专业学生时演的那部戏吗. 贝克特所有的戏剧都是关于坚持下去的决心, the will to go on, 面对生活的根本无意义和荒谬. 我是一个绝对的乐观主义者,但也是一个现实主义者,这很好地反映了我的观点. 我发现贝克特的作品在哲学上既具有挑战性又令人欣慰.”
