The Future of the Humanities Project at Georgetown University brings together scholars across disciplines to discuss critical issues at the intersection of the humanities and public life.
The project is a collaboration between the Georgetown University Humanities Initiative and the Las Casas Institute at Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford.
The project was launched with a November 2018 conference at Oxford University on “The Future of the Humanities,” featuring a keynote address by Dr. Terry Eagleton, and has since sponsored more than a dozen events in Oxford, London, and Washington, DC.
The project is led by Professor Michael Scott, senior advisor to the president of Georgetown University, a leading Shakespeare scholar, and a fellow at Blackfriars Hall, Oxford. Kathryn Temple, professor of English at Georgetown and founding director of the Master's Program in Engaged & Public Humanities, is a senior fellow with the project.
