Dr Laura J. Spence
As part of the recent Women in Research Lecture Series, Dr Laura J. Spence was interviewed by Professor of Classics, Edith Hall. This series of lectures celebrates Royal Holloway's tradition of support for women's education, and lecturers from across the College were invited to discuss a woman in their field who has influenced and inspired their work.
Dr Spence spoke about how the work of Professor Carol Gilligan, a former Harvard professor and psychologist best known for her 1982 book In a Different Voice, has evolved into the Ethics of Care and given her a framework through which she can examine questions about how these organizations make ethical decisions.
