Why study the humanities? Does it have a place in our ever-changing world?
Join us to explore the multi-faceted impact of this discipline at the first-ever Wiley Humanities Festival, a two-day online festival featuring a star-studded lineup of free live events, free access to research, thought leadership pieces from leading academics, and more.
Headlining the festival is our round-table webinar, where a distinguished panel of experts in the humanities will discuss the importance of the discipline and debate the challenges and changes in humanities education today. Join us on September 9 to hear from our four panelists: Dr. Willem B. Drees (editor of Zygon: Journal of Religion and Sciences), Dr. Chris Higgins (editor of Educational Theory), Dr. Ethan Kleinberg (editor of History and Theory), and Caitlin Pollock (Digital Humanities Librarian at Purdue University).
You’ll have the opportunity to ask your own questions and share your personal perspectives on the discipline. There will even be opportunities to enter to win prizes. Seating is limited, so be sure to register today.
