Think Human Festival showcases the exciting and relevant work of Oxford Brookes University’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Think Human events are designed to share the teaching and research we love and demonstrate the value and significance of the humanities and social sciences for everyone.
We invite you to join us for a week of free talks, debates, activities, and performances covering topics as diverse and divisive as Brexit, criminality in the internet age, protest songs, and craft-activism. You can also explore society’s fascination with murder, education’s impact on mental health, working-class fiction, sensory art, and the history of magic.
Test your assumptions, expand your perspectives, explore human identities, and let Think Human empower and inspire you!
