Skills Versus Scholarship in Arts & Humanities Higher Education

A one-day conference hosted by the Humanities & Arts Higher Education Network at The Open University, Milton Keynes, on Saturday, 11 October 1997. Funded by the Department for Education and Employment

Skills versus Scholarship is a one-day conference planned to stimulate debate about the meanings and implications of a higher education in arts and humanities subjects viewed, on the one hand, mainly as a training in 'core', 'transferable' and vocational skills and, on the other, as a site of particular kinds of knowledge.

The day will begin with a keynote address emphasising scholarship in the arts and humanities followed by another with an emphasis on employability. It will conclude with panel/delegates' discussion of these issues. There will also be an exhibition of new teaching materials, methods and projects.



An attendance fee of £30 will be charged for those in employment (including speakers). This will enable us to provide refreshments during the day (coffee, lunch, and tea) and to cover printing and other costs. All conference delegates and HAN members will receive a copy of the Proceedings.
