Oh, the Humanities!: Australia's Innovation System out of Kilter
Cunningham, Stuart
Australian Universities' Review, v49 n1-2 p28-30 Jul 2007
Federal research funding is increasingly pointed towards models of innovation derived from the sciences. And yet, argues Stuart Cunningham, this is an increasingly outmoded model of research discovery. The humanities and social sciences--the poor relations of innovation policy--have been pioneering new and sophisticated paths of research and collaboration between theorists and policy-makers. But no-one in government seems to be looking.
