Humanities perspective 2014

The 3rd Annual Humanities Perspective Conference

DATE

April 4-5, 2014

 

“Communicating Citizenship and Creativity”


University of Groningen, The Netherlands


What is it?

HP14 is a scientific and career orientation event for emerging global leaders in the multi-faceted fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences. We aim to facilitate a collective reflection on some of the key challenges facing the Humanities in the 21st century in Europe and the wider world.

Each year, we gather passionate participants, engaging speakers, and innovative ideas, giving them the opportunity to develop, share, and network.

Our purpose is simple – to enliven the spirit of the Humanities both in its practical and academic applications.

We hope to facilitate the discussion of important questions, such as:

  • In what ways can the Humanities make us better citizens?
  • To what extent and in what ways can an understanding of literature or poetry guide medical professionals?
  • How is the spread of English as a lingua franca affecting linguistic diversity? Will it affect the way we learn languages?
  • How will the digital Humanities change the way we interact with art and literature?

Through the exploration of such questions by students, young professionals and experts, we hope to juxtapose academic topics with real-world applications, thereby illustrating and highlighting the relevance of a humanities degree to a modern day career path.


Who is it for?

In the spirit of the Humanities, we attract a multidisciplinary audience relating to our overall theme and research tracks.

We welcome University of Groningen students and staff, Erasmus Mundus Association and OCEANS Network members, as well as the general public and those from other academic disciplines.


What are the themes?

The Humanities are notoriously broad, but each year we choose four research themes in an attempt to focus our efforts and address current trends.  This year’s themes are a mix of classic and contemporary areas:

  • Literature and Language: The currency of culture, the epitome of education?
  • Medical Humanities: The value of madness in words, or the madness of valuing words?
  • Communicating European Citizenship: The cosmopolitan promise – hollow or whole?
  • Digital Humanities: RE: Murakami – The Collected Emails, 2013-2020
  • Professional Development | Career: The Humanities, what are they good for?

How do I register?

We are a non-profit operation, but do require participants and speakers pay a registration reasonable fee cover our costs.  All registrations will be done through our EventBrite website. You can sign up with all major credit/debit cards or PayPal.

Early-Bird Deadline: February 19th
