Floor Peeters: 'Humanities - what’s in a name?'

“Science can tell you how to clone a T-Rex. Humanities will tell you why this might be a bad idea.” It’s a nostalgic picture, one I remember well from my classes on the humanities discipline. In this short lecture, I will share my academic and professional parcours, from Humanities Lab to Brussels. Along the way, I will showcase how the skills I was taught during my studies got me where I wanted to be and to become who I wanted to be, sometimes in unexpected ways. I will also touch upon the (changing) role of humanities and its interdisciplinarity in policy.
