Disaster & Change 2020

In 2020, we will be sharing a series of podcasts and texts reflecting on the ongoing planetary crisis that we are all living through.

How can the humanities help us to understand what is happening, to generate responses, and to imagine new approaches and solutions to the unprecedented challenges that face us in the days ahead? We invite you to think together with our academics and students, as we draw upon ideas, toolkits and expertise from History and Philosophy and their sister disciplines, and apply them to the present crisis, under the rubric ‘Disaster and Change’.

All our stories on the theme can be found on the Disaster & Change page.
