for public humanities
An international day of study to be held in Venice (Italy) in December 2020 on 'public humanities' and the outflow of the humanitistic knowledge from academic debate circles. Proposal submission closed on Friday, July 10, 2020.
The meeting aims to stimulate some reflections coming from different fields of knowledge and to encourage the dialogue between researchers on the possibilities of the humanities to escape from academic circles. In this sense, the main object of study is the analysis of methodologies and tools related to knowledge dissemination practices for historical, artistic and philological-literary disciplines.
Particular attention will also be given to new professional figures connected to the degree courses of the humanities faculties (such as the ‘public historian’) and to the interactions of these professional figures with the new media of communication and mass dissemination.
