The Centre For Humanities Innovation
The Centre for Humanities Innovation (CHI) aims to foster intellectual creativity in scholarship and to encourage the creation of new ideas, concepts, terms, paradigms, and other products of intellectual imagination.
The Centre's priority is to stimulate the invention and dissemination of new forms of thinking in the future-oriented critical humanities.
Director: , Senior Lecturer in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Durham University
Co-director: , Lecturer in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Durham University
CHI creates space for critical, transformative and experimental approaches in the Humanities: the creation of drafts that might be elaborated and consummated by other researchers; or hypotheses that may or may not be proven or implemented. The emphasis is not on the finished product of research, but on the open processes of search, experimentation, and dialogue.
What We Provide
The Centre provides a flexible and multi-form environment for the development of thinking in the Humanities in the rapidly changing intellectual climate of the twenty-first century. Our programme of activities includes seminars, workshops, manifesto-based symposia, collective improvisations, and reading groups on a wide range of topics related to the state and prospects of the humanities.
