This conference will be the first meeting of the Mellon-funded conference cycle of the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs. The focus of this conference will be “The Critical Tasks of the University” and will evaluate the prevailing metrics of value that increasingly structure and restrict the university in various global locations and to understand how critical thought or more robust notions of “critique” can inform and enliven our contemporary reflections on valuable ways of knowing.
In April 2017, the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) at the University of Edinburgh is hosting a European Conference for the Humanities on behalf of the European Consortium of Humanities Institutes and Centres (ECHIC).
The Public Humanities Network is planning to hold a one-day mini-conference on Monday, August 14 immediately after the close the CHCI meeting in Cape Town. While the program for the event is still in process we know that two areas of focus will be "Public Humanities in Illiberal Times” and “The University and the City.” The conference is likely to be primarily if not entirely devoted to discussion, rather than to paper giving. We are seeking expression of interest from those planning to attend the CHCI meeting and able to stay for the extra day.
Registration is now open for our 2017 annual meeting in Cape Town, taking place from August 10-13, 2017. Under the theme "The Humanities Improvised," the annual meeting aims to gather together artists, art commentators, and humanists from member institutions to reconceptualize the relationship between art and the humanities against the backdrop of rapidly changing world. Our hosts at the Centre for Humanities Research at the University of the Western Cape have put together a fantastic array of events, from conference panels to a major art exhibition to a performance by a highly regarded puppetry company.
