Insights on Public Humanities
a cura di
This volume, which collects the proceedings of the international study day Intersections. New Perspectives for Public Humanities, aims at shedding light on the often complicated and chaotic ‘texture’ of public humanities in order to foster a less marginal place for this field of study. The choice to focus the analysis on a selection of case studies that includes history, cultural heritage, archaeology, and literature leads to redesigning a profile whose main feature is to create bridges between specialised knowledge domains and large audiences and identifying methods and models that can make humanistic knowledge ‘actionable’ in our society.
