All around us, at every level, there are expressions of regret that society is becoming more and more criminal. Many solutions are offered, but the trivialization of Humanities education since the middle of the last century is never mentioned. That is the task of institutes of postsecondary and post-tertiary education all over the world, and corporate Research 1 universities should be able to take the lead here. It is within that urgent need that this conference rethinks this relationship as thought by Ernst Bloch, Ranajit Guha, Jose Rizal, Chinua Achebe, Kofi Awoonor, Assia Djebar, Mahasweta Devi, Lu Xun, René Zavaleta, Abdessalam Benabdelali, and others.
