SKKU: Humanities Lecture “Next Normal, Pursuing Wisdom from Humanities” was held

On February 22, 2022, the “2022 SKKU Humanities Lecture”, hosted by SKKU LINC+ Project and co-conducted by College of Information and Communication Engineering and College of Confucian Studies & Eastern Philosophy, was held at the Live Virtual Studio in Business Building via Webex. In this event, which marks its 7th anniversary, SKKU professors participated as lecturers and 160 executives and employees from tenant companies, Korean university family companies, and local companies and institutions in Pangyo and Seongnam applied.

In a non-contact digital transformation era, new technologies such as AI, IoT, Cloud Computing, Big Data, AIoT are being noticed, but in the end, people are the center here. With the idea that humans are the center of the Next Normal era and the idea that new businesses should also be thoroughly focused on humans, the theme of the lecture became “Next Normal, Pursuing Wisdom from Humanities”.

Professor Min Hwan Jo, dean of the Academy of East Asian Studies, said in the greeting speech, “I wish you the best in the difficult environment of the COVID-19 era, and I hope this humanities lecture will be an opportunity for participants to get ideas for a new paradigm.”

In the morning session, Confucian Studies and Eastern Philosophy professors had time to reflect on human life from oriental philosophy. In the afternoon session, they considered changes, creation, and innovation based on humanities.

One of the entrepreneurs who participated in the lecture said, “Although the lecture was held online due to the spread of Omicron, it was a valuable time to gain humanities reflection and wisdom to create an innovative business model.” The humanities lecture will be held early next year.
