Allyson Carr's New Book

ICS PhD alumna Allyson Carr has just received notification that Palgrave Publishing has awarded her a contract to publish a much revised version of her ICS 2012 PhD thesis under the title: Story and Philosophy for Social Change in Medieval and Postmodern Writing: Reading for Change.

The book takes up the work of Christine de Pizan, Luce Irigaray and Allyson's own very deep distillation of the philosophical work of Hans-Georg Gadamer to explore the work of fiction within philosophy. This is a wonderful testament to the hard work and perseverance of Allyson and at the same time to the quality of work done by ICS PhD candidates.
