Arts and Literature

Given a topic I’ve been kindly asked to talk about this Christmas in Italy in a seminar for Italian “lingue and lettere” teachers, this recent article caught my interest. Arts Degrees: are they worth doing anymore?

Contrast this with the mantra of creativity and its value in the modern workplace which is mostly a myth The Plague of Compulsory Creativity

By the way – the title of the seminar is “Educating humanities and language students for a globalised world – an Italian/Irish perspective” Any comments of suggestions – please feel free to share!
