The responsibility - and the great promise - of the humanities is not just to look backward, but also to think forward. How do humanists take up digital, Indigenous, global, intersectional and publicly engaged challenges? What futures should we be imagining? What futures does our research make possible?

Professor Heather Zwicker, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences invites you to a lively and engaging discussion on the Humanities for the Future.

Eight inspiring researchers from HASS will share their perspectives from different humanities disciplines and inter-disciplines in a series of lightning talks. You’ll be asked to name the humanities hire of your dreams. And all of us will have an opportunity to raise a glass and raise an idea or two together.
