Sociology and history have framed discussions regarding the humanities after Brexit and Trump. We’ve considered such realities as the shrinking of safe and shared public spaces; the increasing prevalence of exclusionary zones in the biosphere as well as the economy; the stress on long-held notions of sovereignty and state. Now we turn to art to help address such questions as ‘is there still room for idealism?’ ‘how do we find nuance in a time when ambiguity is seen as suspect?’ ‘what is the role of art in today’s tumultuous world?’


Please attend the next seminar on Thursday 2nd March to join in with the discussion.
