Henrietta L. Moore
Is the Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity (IGP) at UCL, where she also currently holds the Chair in Culture, Philosophy and Design. A distinguished anthropologist and cultural theorist, her recent work has focused on inclusive sustainable futures. Professor Moore's approach places notions of wellbeing, institutional change and social justice at the focal point of her research, which seeks to challenge hegemonic, unsustainable and exclusive systems. Professor Moore has lectured on Social Theory, Epistemology, Feminist Theory, Gender, Virtuality, Globalisation, Space, Development and Social Enterprise at UCL, LSE, University of California and Cambridge University. Her interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral insights inform the projects undertaken at IGP, which prioritise principles of co-design in developing research. Collaborative methodologies are embedded in the workings of SHM Productions, of which Professor Moore is co-founder and chair. A specialist provider of business services, SHM advices organisations on how to design and implement human-centred systems to improve internal management and external relations. In London, Professor Moore is engaged in several organisations' activities: she is a Trustee of the Barbican Centre Trust, which runs an innovative artistic and creative learning programme and has partnerships across East London and she is a Fellow at the Goodenough College and at the Royal Society of Arts. She is also a former LSE Deputy Director for research and external relations, and Director of the Gender Institute at the LSE from 1994-1999.
