What is the role of Humanities in the journey to the Fourth Industrial Revolution? How important are humanistic disciplines for the kinds of challenges we face in a coming era, supposedly defined by a highly dynamic phase of industrial and social restructuring, where the adaptive capacity of societies needs to be enhanced by specific skills, with techno-social dependencies. What is the role of the Humanities in building cognitive competences, and new professional paths? What can we bring to a new lexicon of: open innovation, co-innovation, co-creation, not only as the “convergence” of peoples, but also machines, with ontologies.
The special focus of the 2019 International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities seeks to unveil the importance of SSH disciplines to the major STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). The future of our planet requires co-creation mechanisms that re-conduct ideas in fundamentally different ways, in order to result in significant value to society, organizations, products, services and business. The conference will explore how the Humanities can contribute to this future.
