WHAT ARE WE DOING WHEN WE DO THE HUMANITIES?
April 21, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Museum of Art & History
Join us for an exploration and celebration of the Humanities at the University of California. Hear leading scholars discuss their work and examine the following questions.
- What does it mean to do the humanities?
- Why do the humanities matter?
- What’s public about the humanities?
The afternoon will consist of panel discussions and poster presentations. Panel topics include the power of language, religion and modernity, empire and nation. Poster presentations cover research on the ethnography of disasters, feminist art, slavery and cannibalism, the criminalization of religious practice, party-crashing in medieval literature, the inevitable fate of the novel, and many others.
