Is there a crisis in the humanities?

Tuesday, April 19

The humanities play an important role in the cultural life of the Ardens and the Arden Club (i.e., Shakespeare, the library, poetry, etc.) The April Scholars Gild speaker, Prof. Graham Hammill, will discuss whether or not there really is a crisis in the humanities in US higher education. The talk will consider humanities education in the context of current problems and challenges in US higher education and some new directions in higher education that are attempting to address the crisis of the humanities.

The Scholars Gild discussions are held at 7:30 PM on the third Tuesday of the month (except July and August) in the lower Gild Hall.
