The European Branch of the World Humanities Report
NEH21.net coordinated and executed successfully the establishment of a European regional network within the broader World Humanities Report, which is a flagship project of CIPSH conducted with CHCI. NEH21.net was successful in securing funding for this project from the Volkswagen foundation and delivered a report, a website, a data bank of interviews, a series of public events including lectures, seminars and symposia. The European Humanities report offers a selected overview of the Humanities across Europe.
Daan F. Oostveen has recently been appointed Editor in Chief of a new Gold Open Access journal named Future Humanities, published by Wiley in Oxford, together with Francesco Tava. Future Humanities highlights the rise and convergence of new and critical humanities by publishing trans- and inter-disciplinary research focused on their diverse subjects and methodologies, including digital transformation and artificial intelligence, health ethics and biomedical technologies, climate change and biodiversity, and new media and communication
