My co-author Ian Goldin opened the British Council’s Going Global conference yesterday in London. The Times Higher Education covered his speech. He highlighted lessons from our book, including:

“Timeless” disciplines, such as the Classics and the humanities, often best “withstand rapid periods of change” because they give students a “skill set of enquiry based on evidence, the ability to assimilate lots of rapidly changing information in a curious way and a hunger for learning that remains for them for the rest of their life”.

Good speech.
