Digital Access, Inclusion, and the Humanities

23 February 2021, 6.00pm - 7.00pm (GMT)


This event is part of 'Open for Discussion’, an annual series of conversations that brings multidisciplinary humanities perspectives to bear on critical social issues – issues with human dimensions frequently overlooked in current policy debates. The focus of this year’s series are those things that the COVID-19 pandemic has made visible, or rather what it has forced us to see more clearly.

This conversation will explore the enormous value of digital tools and platforms in enabling, promoting and developing the humanities at a time of crisis, but it will also consider how the humanities can help us to examine the challenges and pitfalls of the digital.
