Det nyttige Selskab (lit. "The Serviceable Society") was founded in 1774. Over the years, the Society has given a number of gifts to the University of Bergen. In March 2012, six new benches were unveiled in the square outside the HF building.
On January 12th a new art project was unveiled in the lobby of the HF building. The key word is "fragmented." Humanities researchers work with fragments of various kinds: texts, artifacts and linguistic phenomena. These fragments get new life and a new history through scientific concepts and methods. They become a part of life in our own time.
