Professor Stuart Taberner on the importance of the Arts and Humanities to development research

Prof Taberner writes on the role of the Arts and Humanities in development work.

Many of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) focus on basic needs, such as poverty, hunger, health, energy, water and sanitation. But if you assume that means science, engineering and medicine are the only disciplines needed to bring about real progress, you’d be wrong, says Stuart Taberner, Professor of German at the University of Leeds.

In this article, Professor Taberner talks about Arts & Humanities work, including research by colleague, Professor Paul Cooke, that has impact in development projects.
