Prof. Hassan Alnaboodah

Dean, College of Humanities and Social Sciences

The humanities and social sciences make an important contribution to a range of contemporary research questions and problems. Most current social, cultural and economic questions necessitate cross-disciplinary understanding. Emerging fields such as life sciences or the cognitive sciences, in particular, benefit from insights and methodological approaches from the humanities and social sciences. This means that even the most complex problems can be addressed more effectively. Every aspect of our lives can be illuminated, placed in context and better understood thanks to insights provided by the humanities and the social sciences.
