What is the role of the humanities in creating a sustainable and interconnected future?
The value of the humanities in the modern world has prompted numerous debates, struggles for resources, and tensions between disciplines inside higher education.
Georgetown’s Designing the Future(s) of the University Initiative, in collaboration with the new media startup Reinvent, is developing a series of high profile conversations that open up this discussion beyond academia. Last year, we asked leading scholars, innovators in the private sector, and working practitioners of the humanities to share their thoughts on the role the humanities can play in creating a sustainable and interconnected future. This March, we will be conducting a series of interviews at Georgetown, addressing six key topics related to the future of the humanities.
