Description

Arts and Humanities in the Community: Past, Present and Future

The past year has been culturally momentous for Dundee. The £1 billion waterfront regeneration project, with the new V&A at its centre, received widespread media attention and showed the world that Dundee has a thriving cultural community. At the same time, the investment in the museum, and the previous bid for City of Culture, have drawn criticism from those who argue that culture is elitist and the money is better spent tackling social problems such as housing, food poverty, health and education.

In line with these important debates, and Dundee's investment in its future, the theme of this year's Humanities Postgraduate Conference addresses the role that the arts and humanities have historically played in the community, the role it currently plays, and how it may contribute in the future.

This conference is an annual event showcasing the cutting edge research of the University of Dundee's Postgraduate students.
