Arts and Humanities: Of(f) Course
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The title of this conference, Arts and Humanities. Of(f) Course points to the fact that both the arts and the humanities have lost their self-evidence in a world where economic standards are becoming increasingly dominant. Universities are confronted with the demand to ‘valorize’ academic research, but ways to do so are less obvious for the humanities than they are for (most of) the natural sciences. Whatever will be the outcome of this process, the arts and the study of the arts will not be able to carry on along the same path. How should the humanities deal with this problem? What kinds of theoretical frameworks and methodologies can be developed to respond to it? And, finally, what does it mean to be ‘off course’? Does it mean one has to steer back to familiar terrains, or does it mean steering away from the beaten track?
