Zoom Webinar (Register)

At the University of Tokyo, recent years have seen the launch of new education and research organizations related to the humanities and social sciences in quick succession, including the Humanities Center (July 2017), the Asian Research Library (April 2018), Tokyo College (February 2019), the East Asian Academy for New Liberal Arts (March 2019), and the Center for Contemporary Japanese Studies (July 2020). Each of these organizations is actively engaged in envisioning new possibilities for the humanities and social sciences informed by careful reflection on the current state of these academic areas.
Taking into account the diverse issues surrounding academia today, such as the nature of transdisciplinary knowledge, the interaction between academia and society, diversity, globalization, and digitalization, each organization in this symposium will boldly propose its vision for the future of human society and a new humanities and social sciences. By taking a three-dimensional approach to the intersection of these ideas, we will survey how the humanities and social sciences can contribute to both the development of academia and ourselves.
