Revolution! Vienna Humanities Festival 2017

From the 22nd-24th September 2017, the Vienna Humanities Festival returned for a weekend of discussion and debate around the theme of revolution.

 

About the festival:

In its second year, the Vienna Humanities Festival again brought together leading lights from the fields of academia, art and culture, attracting 3,600 visitors over the course of three days with a varied and inspiring programme.

From Friday to Sunday, 40 lectures and discussions on revolution took place around Vienna’s Karlsplatz, featuring topics as diverse as the musical legacy of 1848, the automation of labour, the consequences of 1956 in Hungary today and the sexual revolution of the second half of the 20th century.

And, the festival will now continue online, as we start to produce video highlights of a selection of the discussions. These video highlights will include English subtitles for non-German speakers and will be made available on TTTdebates.org over the coming days and weeks.

To stay informed about the availability of the upcoming video highlights, you can follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter, where we regularly publish updates about the availability of new material and upcoming events.

Full length recordings of the discussions (in their original languages) will also be published on the IWM’s YouTube channel and you can keep track of the availability of these videos by subscribing to the channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/IWMVienna.
