Being Human: a festival of the humanities | 12–22 November 2015
Being Human: 12 - 22 November 2015
In 2014, Being Human featured 162 events organised by over 100 universities and cultural organisations across the country. In 2015, it is proud to return between 12-22 November for 10 days of big questions, big debates and engaging activities for all ages.
The core aim of the Being Human festival is to make research in the humanities accessible and engaging to non-academic audiences, and to demonstrate the role of the humanities in the cultural, intellectual, political and social life of the UK.
The School of Advanced Study, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the British Academy, and the Wellcome Trust has invited participation for the second Being Human festival of the humanities.
Applications for funded activities have now closed. However, until 26 June, we will continue to welcome ideas for unfunded activities.
