What does it Mean to be Human in the 21st Century?

How we understand ourselves, the world, and our place within it.

What does it Mean to be Human in the 21st Century? is a new cross-disciplinary lecture series which will reflect on how we understand ourselves, the world, and our place within it. The lecture series is organised by the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute in partnership with The Dock, Accenture’s global research & incubation hub in Dublin.

This new series will bring some prominent international academic and industry voices to Trinity to discuss the human experience of today and its future in the face of accelerated change brought about by artificial intelligence and technology. 

A broad ranging series of talks traversing the humanities, sciences, arts and social sciences, join us in 2019 for an unmissable snapshot of human progress; who we are, where we are, and where we’re going.
