The annual Being Human festival is the UK's only national festival of the humanities. The festival showcases and celebrates research in humanities subjects including history, literature, classics, philosophy, politics, art history and languages, and aims to highlight their relevance to our everyday lives and the ways in which they help us understand humanity.

The Being Human team warmly invite you to the first ever virtual festival launch, showcasing snippets from this year’s ‘New Worlds’-themed nationwide celebration of the humanities (12–22 November). The launch will preview a programme that explores everything from science-fiction futures, to immersive explorations of the past, to the role of the humanities in the present.

We will also be joined by festival patron Professor David Olusoga OBE for a thought-provoking talk in conversation with festival director Professor Sarah Churchwell, on decolonisation and ‘new worlds’.
