Takeover week: Guest Editor Professor Sunetra Gupta
Scientist and novelist Professor Sunetra Gupta guest edits the programme. Should people stick to a specialism or embrace multitasking in all elements of life?
Acclaimed scientist and novelist Professor Sunetra Gupta guest edits the programme. These are the subjects she has chosen:
Can we be good at more than one thing? Should we stick to a specialism or embrace multitasking in all elements of our life?
Can writing about food be a high literary form? If so, who are the great writers?
Who were the Stettheimer sisters? How do they fit into the Avant-Garde movement of the USA? And why did one of the sisters spend over twenty years working on a doll's house?
In the 1970s women's presses flourished in the UK and around the world. Today their numbers are greatly reduced. So what was the purpose of women only publishers? And what is their relevance today?
