The 2017 Annual Meeting Short Documentary

The 2017 annual meeting of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes was designed by host Premesh Lalu and the meeting committee to explore the multiple ways in which improvisation has enabled and facilitated the study of the humanities, not least in times of great social upheaval. Under the theme of “The Humanities Improvised,” this annual meeting—CHCI's first to take place on the African Continent—brought together artists, art commentators, and humanists from member institutions and guests from all over the world to reconceptualize the relationship between art and the humanities against the backdrop of a rapidly changing world.

If you were not one of the 300+ people in attendance—or if you were—this ten-minute documentary by the team at the Stanley John Agency captures the political, intellectual, and artistic energy of the event.
