The Durham Centre for Humanities Innovation (CHI) was founded to foster intellectual creativity in scholarship and research; and to encourage the creation of new ideas, concepts, mental schemes, and other products of intellectual imagination. This workshop is a follow–up to the international conference Beyond Crisis: Visions for the New Humanities, July 7-8 2014, organised by CHI. At this workshop we will explore the IAS 2014/15 theme, ‘Emergence’, as applied to the emergence of new ideas, approaches and disciplinary trends in the humanities. Each speaker will be allowed 30 minutes for her or his presentation followed by 10 minutes for discussion.
