Welcome all new and old members. “The humanities can be described as the study of how people process and document the human experience. Since humans have been able, we have used philosophy, literature, religion, art, music, history and language to understand and record our world” (Stanford University, 2014). Using more than one discipline in our discussions here makes the Humanities forum different from other forums that are focused on one discipline; i.e., we are multi-disciplinary and encourage many perspectives.

The Humanities forum is subject to all the policies, practices, and guidelines contained within boards.ie FAQ and Terms of Use. These are the guidelines you agreed to when joining boards.ie. Furthermore, this forum is for the serious discussion of humanities topics. Frivolous and off-topic posts may be deleted by the moderator.

No in-thread discussions or comments about moderation. If you have a question about the forum, charter, or actions taken by moderator, please PM the mod. If you feel another member violates these guidelines, do not comment in-thread, rather use the Report button [!] in their post, and the mod will review it when time permits.

Members make the forum. You shape it with your posts. This forum and charter are subject to continuous improvement and revision. If you have an idea for improvement, please PM the mod. Revisions will be dated in charter title as they occur.
