Exploring how the humanities and connected disciplines can respond to contemporary challenges.

About this event

Aligning with the School of Humanities strategy around 'engaged' humanities and the wider college focus on interdisciplinary and challenge-led research, the Engaged Humanities Day will explore the ways in which the humanities, as well as parallel disciplines in the arts and social sciences, can respond to the post-COVID landscape.
