Impact in the Humanities
The SVT symposium is an annual public event where central topics in science and society are debated . At the symposium in 2018 we discussed the social impacts of the humanities in and beyond academia.
What is the impact of the humanities beyond academia? Can humanistic research contribute to solving the social challenges of our time?
From the 2017 government white paper ("Humaniorameldingen"), via the following evaluation of the humanities in Norway in (HUMEVAL), to the UiB Humanities Strategy (2018), the question of the Humanities, its role and mission, is at the centre of attention.
At the SVT symposium 2018 we ask: What is the problem that these efforts are intended to solve? Whose problem is it? And lastly, what are the implications of the solution?
