4H: Advocating for Humanities at UCL

Government and private support for the Arts and Humanities is in decline -- for research, teaching, preservation, and creative renewal in such fields as  literature, history, languages, philosophy, classics, art history, and  cultural studies. What can we do to demonstrate that the  Arts and Humanities matter? This free, one-day symposium at UCL will feature leading figures in understanding, demonstrating, and  advocating for the Arts and Humanities.

The symposium will also mark the  launch of the 4Humanities@UCL chapter.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor Alan Liu, University of California Santa Barbara, and 4Humanities founder
  • Dr Rüdiger Klein, European Alliance for the Social Sciences and Humanities
  • Amy Westwell and Oliver Milne, The Free Hetherington Campaign
  • Neil Griffiths, Arts Emergency
  •  Dr Anna Upchurch, University of Leeds, and Dr Eleonora Belfiore, University of Warwick
  • Professor Andrew Prescott, King's College London.

More information will be posted soon at 4Humanities at UCL. The symposium is free to attend, and all with an interest in this area are welcome, but please do register in advance.

UCLDH are pleased to be organising this free, one day symposium at UCL in collaboration with 4Humanities, Arts Emergency, and the UCL Department of Information Studies.

4Humanities@UCL is supported by UCL Enterprise, as part of the Knowledge Transfer and Enterprise scheme at UCL in 2012.
