The Alliance’s Humanities blog is a collection of Humanities perspectives and comment pieces on news, current affairs and publications. The blog covers the range of Humanities subject areas and we encourage contributions from Humanities researchers and those interested in the Humanities.
As we navigate a national and global public health crisis with the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), the IHA features perspectives from within the humanities research community. This new blog series reflects on the Covid-19 crisis in all of its complexity by assessing past pandemics and Covid-19’s impact on our daily lives, society, culture, how we work, how we are governed and how we deal with death.
Lectures have ended, exams are corrected, just what do academics do all summer? Fieldwork and research, write books and articles, organise and attend conferences, update next year’s courses, supervise postgraduate dissertations, overhaul websites… For the next few months we want to show you what humanities academics get up to when the students aren’t looking.
