Celebrating our Interdisciplinarity

The Institute for Humanities at Northumbria

Book launch and networking event

Venue: Northumbria University, Institute for Humanities, Lipman Building, 1st Floor Hub Area and Lipman 204

Date: 23 November 2017, 2 pm to 6 pm

Northumbria University’s Humanities Institute draws not just on the scholars in the Humanities Department who work in linguistics and literature, creative writing and history, but on many others from our university, in visual culture, sociology, geography and elsewhere. The Institute facilitates interdisciplinary conversations and discoveries and develops major themes such as activism; American studies; environmental humanities; gender and sexuality; creative practice; mobility, diaspora and borders; heritage and identity; and medical humanities.

This, the formal launch of the Institute for Humanities, celebrates five important new books and reflects on how our work is received by humanities scholars in the widest sense. We especially welcome colleagues and postgraduate students from Newcastle, Sunderland, Teesside and Durham Universities.
