DAY 2 Speakers

National Humanities Conference #humanitiescon2021
DAY 2 Speakers

11/08/2021

A few highlights from our first Keynote Speaker at #HumanitiesCon2021, Prof. Paul Tiyambe Zeleza, United States International University, Nairobi.

• Across Africa and around the world, humanities are deemed to be in crisis as they face a barrage of epistemic and ideological assaults from politicians, business people, general public and in their own institutions from administrators and fellow academics.
• The critics of the humanities often centre on their purported “lack of usefulness” and apparent lack of inability to offer employability skills to their graduates.
• In order for the liberal arts and social sciences disciplines to realize their full potential and effectively fend against the barbarians at the gates, they need to do a much better job of organizing, defending, and marketing themselves.
• They must address the concerns and interests of contemporary students and society. All too often humanities faculty and disciplines are trapped in antiquarian discipline specializations and try to fiercely defend their antiquated Eurocentric disciplinary architecture of the 19th Century.
• The history of ideas shows that massive transformations have taken place since then in the systems of knowledge production, dissemination and organization.
• New areas like Medical and Legal Humanities underscore the fact both Medicine and Law are not just technical pursuits but are grounded, can benefit from and their impacts can be more fully understood in humanistic frames of analysis.
• Data Science is also increasingly casting its spell on the humanities both as an object of study and a method that builds on longstanding traditions of integrating data in the humanities.

Catch Day 2 of #HumanitiesCon2021 online tomorrow.

Makerere's Henry Zakumumpa set out to explore health-system resilience at the sub-national level in Uganda with regard to strategies for dispensing ARVs during Covid-19 lockdown. He concluded that while Covid-19 lockdown restrictions undoubtedly impeded access to facility-based HIV services, they revived interest by providers and demand by patients for community-based ART delivery models in case-study districts in Uganda.
