Inhoud
In Humanities Today, students from the different ICON research master programs are invited to discuss, with one another, the key concepts and turns that are at stake in their particular field of interest; from 'otherness', to 'the power of language/image/sound', from 'the digital turn' to the coming of the 'posthuman', from 'material culture' to 'ecocriticism' to 'activism in the arts'. In interdisciplinary groups a series of influential texts that work with these ideas are being read and discussed. Also, professors from the various fields of our interest are being invited to join the discussion and to elaborate on how and why these themes matter today in the arts and in society.

Career orientation:
Students are familiarized with very contemporary research, which is helpful for shaping their future research profile on the academic job market and beyond.
