Swansea University’s Cultural Institute has been chosen as one of four hubs for Being Human 2021, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities.

Now in its eight year, Being Human is led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy. This partnership draws together the three major bodies dedicated to supporting and promoting humanities research in the UK and internationally.

Returning between 11–20 November, Being Human’s theme this year is ‘Renewal’. Being Human is a free multi-city festival with hundreds of free events showcasing how humanities researchers work every day on issues that shape the world that we live in.

All events are free and will be delivered by the Cultural Institute at Swansea University in collaboration with a range of partners from the Swansea Bay area.
