CONTENT

INTRODUCTION: THE HUMANITIES IN THE WORLD

Anders Engberg-Pedersen, Mikkel Bille, Karen Gram-Skjoldager

ON NOT ’JUSTIFYING’ THE HUMANITIES

Stefan Collini

THE HUMANITIES BEYOND INTERPRETATION

Onora O’Neill

HOW THE HUMANITIES HAVE CHANGED THE WORLD

Rens Bod

“By asking us to rethink how we talk about the humanities, what doing humanistic research entails, and what the concrete impact of the humanities is, the ideas in this book challenge conventional notions of the alleged isolationism and practical insignificance of humanities research. Instead, they point to the myriad ways in which the humanities are situated in the world and have both engaged and changed it. Spotlighting these often invisible connections, and articulating better the practical dealings across the wide territory between the myth of the ivory tower and the myth of salvation, will at least present us with a more accurate picture of what goes on in the humanities today.”
