Humanities

At the Newman Lecture at Campion Hall in 2018, the Chancellor, Lord Patten, spoke:

"Why bother, some ask, to study and research the humanities? Why do I cherish the work at this university of all those academics whose work on literature, history, music, philosophy, classics, theology, foreign languages and so on does not obviously add to British capacity to innovate, to our national productivity or our GDP? The answer is simple. We must support the humanities because we are human. Because they provide us with a fuller understanding of our world and of one another."

In various ways, Campion Hall's students and fellows are continuing the Hall’s outstanding tradition of engagement with the humanities in the attempt to promote ‘all things human’.
