Reiceived via H-IDEAS:
Meeting the Current Challenges: the Humanities and employability,
entrepreneurship and employer engagement
Friday 23 October 2009, Woburn House, 20 Tavistock Square, London, WC1H 9HQ

The question of student employability has rapidly risen up the agenda in
the past few years at both departmental and institutional level. Whilst
students of humanities disciplines develop the intellectual skills and
attributes widely sought by employers (e.g. critical thinking, time
management, constructing arguments, and intercultural and communication
skills), teachers of humanities subjects in higher education can find it
very challenging to help their students articulate these skills and
attributes to themselves and to future employers.

Demonstrating that the study of the humanities creates economic, social
and cultural value has particular poignancy in the present economic
climate. Organised by five humanities subject centres and the Routes into
Languages programme, ‘Meeting the Current Challenges’ is a one day
conference aimed at teachers of humanities in higher education seeking to
enhance the employability of their students. The conference aims to share
good practice across humanities subjects.
