Conference on the Humanities and the Arts in the Integrated Knowledge University

What is the future of the arts and humanities in the research university? What role might they play in a global and digital age that sees the various fields of knowledge becoming ever more integrated? Should they help to forge new connections with science, business, law, and medicine—or can they contribute more by maintaining a distinct identity?

Please join us for two days of lively multi-disciplinary discussions and performances across the arts and sciences.
