PODCAST: 'What are the Humanities for?' with Rosi Braidotti and Costas Douzinas
held at Birkbeck College London 19 November 2009
Rosi Braidotti (Utrecht) and Costas Douzinas (Birkbeck):
'What are the Humanities for?'
According to an article in the Times Higher Education Supplement (29th October 2009) “humanistic scholarship ought to aspire to wisdom, but most academics do not rise to the challenge and address their peers rather than distressed mankind“. Is humanities research addressing the right questions? What contribution are the humanities making towards solving urgent problems? How can humanities disciplines renew themselves?
