The Arts and Humanities and Covid-19

Activity: Disseminating Research Invited talk


Scottish Arts and Humanities Alliance (SAHA) Launch Webinar Programme


The aim of the Scottish Arts and Humanities Alliance is to highlight the creative, social and economic value of arts and humanities as we tackle the challenges of our times. Innovative and imaginative solutions to real-world challenges will necessarily involve the input of arts and humanities scholars and practitioners. In the SAHA Launch Webinar Programme, November-December 2020, three areas were chosen in which to underline our contribution to discussions of current social importance.

The first webinar, on Monday 30 November 2020, was on the Arts and Humanities and Covid-19. Chaired by Dame Seona Reid DBE FRSE, it features contributions by Dr Katherine Champion, Senior Lecturer in Media and Communication at the University of Stirling; Samuel K. Cohn Jr, Professor of Medieval History at the University of Glasgow, fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and honorary fellow of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) at the University of Edinburgh; Dr Azadeh Emadi, a researcher and video maker at the University of Glasgow; Caron Gentry, Professor in the School of International Relations at St Andrews; Nicolas Le Bigre, Teaching Fellow and archivist at the University of Aberdeen’s Elphinstone Institute; and Katey Warran an AHRC-funded PhD student at the University of Edinburgh.
