WHERE’S THE LITERATURE IN LITERARY STUDIES?

Even the current economic boom can’t accommodate the best of our new humanities Ph.Ds. “Some assume that we humanists have a clear sense of what the humanities do and what makes them valuable – that we simply need to convince those crass others, whether within the university or outside its walls, that they really need us. But that assumption is untrue. No one’s even angry with us now, just bored.” – Boston Review
