European Consortium for Humanities Institutes and Centres (ECHIC) annual conference provisionally entitled ‘Grand Challenges for the Humanities?’, will take place at the Centre for the Humanities in Utrecht from the 28th of February to the 1st of March, 2012. The general theme allows for four strands, around which the conference will evolve:
• Environmental humanities
• Civic responsibility of the humanities
• Globalizing humanities
• Cognitive humanities
Moreover, there will be two forums:
• Digital forum – on the digitalization of the Humanities
• Institutional forum – for international policy makers in the field of the Humanities
Within the conference, a parallel affinity group session entitled ‘Supporting Content: Policy Management, Finances & Communication Strategies for HICs’ will be organized especially for managers and administrators of centres and institutions.
More information will be available in due time.
