Making a Difference: Rethinking Humanism and the Humanities
2011 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
Making a Difference: Rethinking Humanism and the Humanities is a collection of fourteen conference papers written in response to a call for new ways of thinking about the humanities within an academic system in transformation. A guiding principle of the conference was to allow the arts - film in particular - to have a voice in the process of possible reorientation. The unifying theme is the continual reconsideration of its own aims, purposes, practices and critical potential as the most salient characteristic of humanist thinking, something which is ultimately up to each individual to work out for herself, as the various responses to our call in this volume testify.
