Who Should Attend?

The QS Subject Focus Summit on Language , Literature and Culture (LLC) should be attended by everyone involved in the management of a LLC departments, or related academic departments. The Summit is highly relevant for both ‘insiders’, such as deans, department chairs, academics, professional administrators and student representatives, as well as external stakeholders from government and the private sector, who work with LLC departments and depend on them to deliver outstanding graduates and socially relevant, high impact research.

In addition to these two groups, persons from other academic disciplines, the media, academics and consultants in technology management or higher education management, and those involved in university planning and rankings will find the Summit a useful microcosm of the management challenges and opportunities present in academic departments in the humanities and social sciences. As universities are increasingly expected to not just educate, but to also contribute to social innovation and the creative sectors, these issues have broad social relevance.
