Live-streamed discussion in Oxford

The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities is pleased to present:

What does it mean to be human in the digital age?

Humanities and the Digital Age will explore the relationship between Humanities and the digital. It will consider digital’s at once disruptive and creative potential, and imagine future territory to be prospected. Underpinning this is perhaps the most important question of all: What does it mean to be human in the digital age?  How might it reshape the way we create meaning and values?

In this opening event we bring together a panel of experts from across the Humanities and the cultural sector to examine how the digital age has shaped, and will continue to shape, the human experience and the Humanities. We will be joined by Tom Chatfield (author and broadcaster), Chris Fletcher (Professorial Fellow and Keeper of Special Collections at the Bodleian Library), Diane Lees (Director-General of Imperial War Museums), and Emma Smith (Fellow and Tutor in English, University of Oxford). The discussion will be chaired by Dame Lynne Brindley (Master, Pembroke College, University of Oxford).

The discussion will be live-streamed. Click HERE to join.  For further information, please contact Hannah Penny at the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities.
