X close


Over the last decade, there has been an increasing pressure on scholars in the humanities to articulate the value of their work in terms of measurable social, cultural, or economic ‘impact.’ In light of these developments, this year’s theme Utrecht University annual Humanities Graduate Conference was ‘What’s the Point? Impact and the Future of the Humanities.’ This issue of Junctions, called ‘Questioning Value,’ developed in close collaboration with the conference, and asks what it means for humanities research to be valuable.
