Arts Conference Announcement 2015
Written by Administrator   
Tuesday, 14 April 2015

The Faculty of Arts 6th annual conference is being organised by the Faculty of Arts Research and Ethics Committee at the University of Zululand, uMhlathuze / Richards bay South Africa from 19th to 21st October 2015. The conference theme is ‘Future of Humanities and Social Sciences’.
Humanities and Social Sciences are recognised to be important in academic and research environments and therefore are always given attention in many ways. The ‘Humanities’ study human culture while the ‘Social Sciences’ study society. Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines overlap to some extent. For example, Humanities disciplines include languages, literature, philosophy and religion, and the visual and performing arts, while Social Sciences disciplines include anthropology, economics, political science, psychology and sociology. Both disciplines share communication studies, cultural studies, history, law and linguistics and are increasingly becoming multidisciplinary.

The Faculty of Arts Annual Conference has been successfully organised five times in the past at the University of Zululand. The theme of the upcoming  conference  ‘ Future of Humanities and Social Sciences’ will enable the conference participants to discuss current research  issues, trends, challenges and opportunities in the broad sub-themes in the listed fields.
