20 Years CRASSH – Talking Heads: Humanities Futures

15 January 2021, 14:00 - 15:30


20 Years of CRASSH Anniversary Programme


To inaugurate CRASSH’s 20th anniversary year, three previous Directors of CRASSH, Ludmilla Jordanova (2003 - 2005), Mary Jacobus (2005 - 2010) and Simon Goldhill (2011 - 2018) join with current Director Steven Connor for a conversation about the past, present and future of humanities research, chaired by Andrew Webber (Acting Director 2009 - 2010).

What are humanities research centres for? Has their role changed? Are the arts being swallowed up by the humanities? When everybody claims to be interdisciplinary, what kind of future do disciplines have? Is there even in fact a future for the humanities?
