IE University’s Humanities Week analyzes the impact of art and the humanities on the perception of the world

IE University's Humanities Week

Students will be able to attend a digital meeting with The Fuzzie and the Techie author Scott Hartley, as well as visit the Marlborough Gallery, among other activities.

This week, IE University celebrates the third annual Humanities Week. Campus Life, in collaboration with the Arts and Humanities Division and the IE Foundation, organizes this annual event with the arts and humanities to explore how humanistic disciplines can transform our perspective and change the way we see life.

Entitled A Matter of Perception, this hybrid conference includes lectures, interviews, private visits, workshops and exhibitions, which will help to deepen the impact of one of IE University’s core values regarding our understanding of the world and career development.

Santiago Íñiguez de Onzoño, Executive President of IE University, will interview Scott Hartley, investor and author of books such as The Fuzzy and the Techie: Why the Liberal Arts Will Rule the Digital World, via a digital meeting on LinkedIn. Harley will discuss the contradictory reality of business today, explaining why managers with arts and humanities backgrounds will lead the digital environment.

During Humanities Week, IE University members will be able to visit the la Marlborough Gallery in Madrid, which is currently exhibiting works by Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon, such as the Irish painter’s Second Version of the Triptych. In Segovia, students will be able to visit the studio of artist Patricia Azcarate, as well as the House of Cards, an exhibition at the IE Creativity Center.

To coincide with Humanities Week, IE Law School and IE Arts & Humanities Division will organize the PPLE Philosophy Series, a series of conferences led by the heads of the PPLE program, the degree in Philosophy, Politics, Law and Economics, with international experts, focused on analyzing Reasons for Hope.

In addition, over the course of the week, students will be able to participate in various workshops focused on opening the mind to improvisation, deepening the management of emotions and enhancing the creative and artistic mindset.
