H-FARM Librarian’s Book Picks

written by Federico Trimeri, the H-FARM Librarian

The mission of the library is to keep the love of reading alive, to propose topics that lead to a discussion, and to allow individuals to grow and expand their knowledge. The library is a democratic space that can be practical (anyone can find something they need, like a book that holds an answer) or magical (to explore). The H-FARM library proposes to make these two souls cohabit, in a structure that is architecturally and ideally open.

Reading is an essential component in the education and lifelong learning of the individual. Books guide each person from school to adult life, taking on different meanings: essential material in research, source of deepening, the component of leisure, and a way to travel to worlds far far away.

At the H-FARM library, we have a collection of over 2000 books available, a collection that is constantly expanding, with topics from different perspectives and touching various themes. The librarian staff, therefore, tries to offer the reader a broader overview of the topic, in order to stimulate curiosity and broaden the conversation on any given subject. For the month of May, we are celebrating books related to diversity, equity, and inclusion and recommend the following books to our community.

  • Manifesto cyborg : donne, tecnologie e biopolitiche del corpo / Donna J. Haraway
    Fundamental text of the American philosopher, an analysis on the artificial naturalness of man and the expansion of the boundaries of gender with the advent of the new man-machine (18+ ages)
  • Invisibili : come il nostro mondo ignora le donne in ogni campo : dati alla mano / Caroline Criado Perez
