The extraordinary life and work of the pioneering 1920s motor engineer, Dorothée Pullinger, continues to fascinate and academics at UWS are searching for her Paisley connection.

 

UWS academics in search of Dorothee Pullinger’s Paisley connection

The research was enabled by a Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenious award in 2017 for ‘A Car for Women, and other stories’ project, and the University’s Vice Principal’s Research Fund. The project is a multidisciplinary joint venture between the School of Engineering and Computing (Professor Katherine Kirk) and the School of Media, Culture and Society (Professor Katarzyna Kosmala) in collaboration with Scottish cultural organisations and independent historians.

Tony Grace of the School of Media, Culture and Society is currently making a film about Pullinger's  extraordinary life.
