What Are the Humanities? What Makes Us Human?
12 November, 2020 - 21 November, 2020
This is an online event.
Directed by Annlin Chao, supported by researcher Jo Sofaer and fellows from Humanities European Research Area (HERA), this short film project brings together global animation talents and humanities researchers, exploring and discussing why the humanities matter. The humanities are often underrated by their importance, yet they are the key to supporting human-kind through all times, remembering who we are, not mentioning the essential role during this global crisis.
From a world of pure emptiness and nihility, the character is dragged into unpredicted but extraordinary worlds. The worlds ahead waiting for her seem to be imaginary, yet strangely familiar: archaeology, anthropology, history, religion, literature, art and music…They are the worlds of humanities.
The film will be available to view on the HERA website here from 12 November. A short, pre-recorded panel discussion reflecting on the importance and relevance of the humanities in today’s world is also available to view here.
