Humanities Forward: Opportunities and Challenges for the Next Twenty Years
University of Oxford | Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities
Conference “Humanities Forward: Opportunities and Challenges for the Next Twenty Years”
Whereto the Humanities? What will preoccupy the Humanities scholar as we hurtle towards mid-century at an ever-increasing pace? Beset by institutional hawks demanding more quantitative impact and value, how do the Humanities respond, innovate, and preserve the tangible and intangible affects which make our work worthwhile? This conference invites early career researchers and graduate students—along with other interested stakeholders—to paint our near-future with a critical eye, to debate what the Humanities are going forward, and to tackle the challenges and opportunities researchers are facing in a changing world.
The conference features a special panel on the Future of Historical Linguistics.
