The British Academy host a conference on “the humanities under threat“, featuring a “distinguished panel” of seven male speakers.
Now, I welcome the organising of such events. But isn’t it precisely the study of humanities that should (also) teach us the value of diversity????? Shouldn’t such a conference set an example of what the study of humanities involves, not merely discuss what it should be? Walk the walk, not merely talk the talk?
Why oh why was this overlooked — again?
