Culture, Arts and Humanities Task ForceJuan Luis García Alonso
SCOPE OF THE CULTURE, ARTS AND HUMANITIES TF
The task of the Culture, Arts and Humanities Task Force is to foster cultural expertise and creativity within the teaching and research of the Coimbra Group universities, raising awareness of the central contribution of culture to processes of identity formation, the self-definition of societies, the reflection of their values and the commitment to cultural and linguistic diversity. Based on the cultural heritage of the Coimbra Group Universities, the Task Force seeks to explore the ways in which the traditional role of European historical universities in shaping European culture can be continued in the 21st century.
It is also the task of the Culture, Arts and Humanities Task Force to contribute to the reflection of the changing conditions of the Arts and Humanities sector, and to advocate, in the light of present reform processes in education and research and based on experiences of the Coimbra Group Universities, the centrality of the Arts and Humanities for European universities and societies.

HORIZON 2020: Social Sciences and Humanities
Jürgen Barkhoff (TCD), Juan Luis García Alonso (Salamanca and Chair of the TF) and Anna Quici (Brussels Office) travelled to Vilnius in September 23rd-24th, to attend the Humanities Horizons Conference (http://horizons.mruni.eu/). That was just a few weeks before the actual launching of the programme. The impression overall was that Horizon 2020 does not feel very promising for the SSH, however hard the European Commission tried to make all representatives attending feel otherwise. Let us hope this is not the case.
