Thoughts are my own - Abraham Accords for Peace and Prosperity: From the Start to the Future
Each month, on our Faculty Blog, we share an opinion piece written by one of our members. This section called "Thoughts are my own" address key societal challenges and investigates the way human gives meaning to the world. Our goal is to encourage debate and discussion among colleagues, but also with students and broader audiences.


What is
Humanities.lu?

Through humanities and social sciences, we learn about our cultural heritage, about the foundations of society and the ongoing construction of history. We become aware of the constitutive force of language, of diverging cultures and identities, and how social structures develop into mental structures. But the ‘soft’ sciences are not focussing on the past only. In various ways, they are also engaged with the future, they extend the scope of the thinkable and inform ongoing cultural processes. Their role is to reveal alternatives in dealing with current issues and future challenges.

At the University of Luxembourg, The Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences addresses these complex challenges with an interdisciplinary approach. The purpose of this website is to show the major outcomes of this work by presenting the Faculty’s six main areas of research: Education & Social Work, Migration, Behavioural & Cognitive Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences, Geography & Spatial Planning. In all of these areas, researchers tackle the challenges the Luxembourgish society is facing today: How can we belong? How shall we live? How can we shape our future? They all contribute to the common goal of an inclusive, open and resourceful society. They show that #HumanitiesMatter.
