There is a growing concern on the future of the humanities in the higher education system and in our societies at large. We are witnessing very deep changes and transformations in our societies such as environmental, scientific and technological transformations and cultural aspects of a global world. These transformations pose huge challenges that need to be addressed, and higher education has a key role to play in addressing them. Diagnosis, debate and proposal of actions on these issues is necessary if we want to be able to face current and future changes in a democratic and sustainable way.

In relation to this topic, GUNi held the International Conference on Humanities an Higher Education, which counted on the participation of over 160 attendees from 22 countries around the world. The Conference was conceived as an integral part of the process of elaboration of the 7th GUNi Higher Education in the World Report, which will be launched on the 28th November 2019 in Barcelona. The Report has counted on the support of the following local and international advisory committees.

Free entrance. Limited places. Registration and programme will be available in the coming months. Stay tuned!
