What are the Humanities For?

Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities

What are the Humanities For?
Speakers: Rosi Braidotti (Utrecht) and Costas Douzinas (Birkbeck)
According to an article in the Times Higher Education Supplement (29th October 2009) "humanistic scholarship ought to aspire to wisdom, but most academics do not rise to the challenge and address their peers rather than distressed mankind". Is humanities research addressing the right questions? What contribution are the humanities making towards solving urgent problems? How can humanities disciplines renew themselves?
Thursday 19th November 6pm Room 1.02 Malet Place, Engineering (UCL)
Free - all welcome - no registration.
