New Approaches to Humanities Education


Location: Online - Georgetown University Rome Office

The last two decades have seen innovative efforts at Chinese universities to strengthen humanities education, drawing on a range of resources including the Confucian tradition and existing liberal education models around the world. The China Forum for Civilizational Dialogue is convening a panel of experts to address three key questions: What explains the revival of humanities education in China? What are its main contours and variants? How does it relate, if at all, to wider challenges of economic and social development facing the country?

The China Forum, a collaboration between Georgetown University and La Civiltà Cattolica, convenes Chinese academics and public figures with international partners to discuss common challenges at the intersection of culture, ethics, and global society. Through academic seminars, public events, and an online platform, the China Forum is initially focusing on three topics: the global ecological crisis, humanities education for a global era, and the ethics of artificial intelligence.
