Being Human 2021, led by the University of London’s School of Advanced Study, will take place from 11 to 20 November and will explore the theme ‘renewal’. From renewed relationships with the environment and climate change, to renewed identities, narratives and histories.

The festival defines the humanities broadly to encompass the subject areas traditionally associated with the study of the human world. This includes, for example, art history, archaeology, architecture, classics, cultural studies, history, film, languages, literature, musicology, philosophy, theatre studies, and religious studies. The festival highlights the ways in which the humanities can inspire and enrich our everyday lives.
