The Being Human festival is the first and only national festival of the humanities in the UK, led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
This year, Queen's University Belfast has been selected as one of five 'Being Human Hubs' across the UK and will host a series of events on the theme of ‘Lost and Found’ running from the 19-24 November 2017. Each event will explore an aspect of humanities-based research and has been developed in conjunction with a wide range of Northern Ireland wide community partners such as Tinderbox Theatre Company, Action on Hearing Loss, the Ulster Museum and Armagh Planetarium.
The Being Human festival demonstrates the breadth, diversity and vitality of the humanities, their accessibility and relevance to people’s lives, and that research in the humanities is vital for the cultural, intellectual, political and social life of the UK and globally.
