Books By & For Academics
Read books written by women [in academia] and
books that can change your perspective and advance your research.
Non-required reading is the first thing to get dropped from our agendas when we get busy. Yet, it is one of the most fruitful and important things that we can do as academics. Reading beyond your research area broadens the mind, expands your interests and opens up new opportunities and directions for your research.
This article by Dr Siobhan O'Dwyer gives a framework for your non-academic reading. We have also started an academic book club using this list for those wishing to expand their reading list with the aim of improving their writing.
