Culture, Arts and Humanities Task Force Juan Luis Garca Alonso SCOPE OF THE CULTURE, ARTS AND HUMANITIES TF The task of the Culture, Arts and Humanities Task Force is to foster cultural expertise and creativity within the teaching and research of the Coimbra Group universities, raising awareness of the central contribution of culture to processes of identity formation, the self-definition of societies, the reflection of their values and the commitment to cultural and linguistic diversity. Based on the cultural heritage of the Coimbra Group Universities, the Task Force seeks to explore the ways in which the traditional role of European historical universities in shaping European culture can be continued in the 21 st century. It is also the task of the Culture, Arts and Humanities Task Force to contribute to the reflection of the changing conditions of the Arts and Humanities sector, and to advocate, in the light of present reform processes in education and research and based on experiences of the Coimbra Group Universities, the centrality of the Arts and Humanities for European universities and societies.

Let us hope this is not the case.
