Dr Richard Howells, our Reader in Culture, Media and Creative Industries, has become a regular contributor to The Times Higher Education magazine’s “What Are You Reading?” column. His latest is a review of Arthur I Miller’s Colliding Worlds: How Cutting-Edge Science Is Redefining Contemporary Art (New York: Norton, 2015). Dr Howells is also an admirer of Miller’s Einstein, Picasso: Space, Time, and the Beauty That Causes Havoc (London: Basic Books, 2002). Both books link creativity in theory and practice. Howells’ own monograph: A Critical Theory of Creativity is due out this autumn with Palgrave Macmillan.
