Humanities in the 21st Century

Loughborough University is excited to host an all-day research event in which our academics will be joined by Professor Edward Harcourt, the UKRI Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Director of Research, Strategy, and Innovation to discuss Humanities in the 21st Century and to explore links between humanities and other fields.

The event will be held on Friday 19th November, 10:00-17:00, and will take place at Loughborough University in the Herbert Manzoni Building, room K105

The purpose of the event is to highlight how the humanities connect to other fields of enquiry and will include interdisciplinary research and feature guest speakers from a wide range of Schools and divisions.

The event will focus on the following themes:

  • Humanities, Design, and the Arts
  • Humanities, Society, and the Environment
  • Humanities, Health, and Wellbeing
  • Humanities Futures
  • Humanities, Science, and Technology

The co-organisers of the event; Kathryn BrownBarbara Cooke, and Marcus Collins, have extended the invitation beyond Loughborough University and encourage public attendance either in-person or online.
