Conference: The Value of the Humanities

The DLCC invites participants to join us for a conference on the 24th and 25th September on the Value of the Humanities.

The conference will present output of the AHRC Research Project on the value of the humanities at the University of Cambridge 2016–17 alongside contributions from leading thinkers including philosopher and novelist Professor Sir Roger Scruton, neuroscientist and polymath Professor Raymond Tallis, DLCC Fellow and Sculptor in Ordinary to the Queen Professor Sandy Stoddart, and philosopher and public intellectual Dr Alicja Gescinska.

The question of the value of the humanities is at the forefront of current debates in research and pedagogy and bears directly on the DLCC’s work developing interdisciplinary ethics classes for primary and secondary schools. This event is jointly sponsored by the DLCC, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK), Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, and the Institute of Philosophy, University of Warsaw.

Venue: Blackfriars Hall University of Oxford

Time: 2pm 24th September – 7pm 25th September 2017

A registration fee covering of £15 applies. A limited number of places at the speakers’ dinner on the 24th September and the conference dinner on the 25th September are available. Please enquire when registering.
