Chicago Humanities Festival

ARE HUMANS ANIMALS? Not long ago, the question produced a predictable standoff. Now it is the start of a fascinating conversation

The 24th Chicago Humanities Festival will take this new exchange of ideas out of the academy and into the public. We will explore what it means to think about culture biologically, about biology culturally, and about the human-animal relationship beyond the science/humanities divide. In presenting the most cutting-edge work on this subject, Animalwill give us a whole new perspective on our world and ourselves. Most important, though, it will give us new answers to the oldest and most fundamental question in the humanities: What makes us human?
