Publication details for Prof Mikhail Epstein

Epstein, Mikhail & Crumey, Andrew (2011). A Dialogue On Creative Thinking and the Future of the Humanities. Insights 4: 12.

Author(s) from Durham


A writer and a scholar discuss the future of the humanities and their evolution in a new, practical direction. What is the connection between creativity and education and how can the academy embrace programs not only in creative writing but also creative thinking? Should we teach students how to write literary manifestos and construct alternative worlds? What would be a new transformative universe that is now born from the universe of information?
