A new initiative takes SHAPE

Updated post

SHAPE is a new intiative for Humanities and Arts subjects.

A piece in today's Observer explores the project further, written by Sir Peter Bazalgette.

The British Academy, the Arts Council and the London School of Economics have got together with others to remarket their endeavours as:
 Social Sciences, Humanities & the Arts for People & the Economy – or Shape, in short. 
In future, they hope, you’ll be as likely to talk about the Shape subjects as you will the Stem equivalents. It’s not just an acronymic sleight of hand, because what will flow from this, they intend, is a reappraisal of the role and importance of the Shape disciplines with debates, essays and research projects
