  • Weekend Reading: Nearly Back to School Edition

    Chronicle of Higher Education - 08/16/2013

    • If you teach in the humanities (or perhaps even if you dont!) this “The Humanities Matter!” infographic from 4Humanities and the University College London Centre for Digital Humanities could make a lovely addition to your wall or office door. It’s big—I had it printed at full size and it spans most of the hallway wall just astride my office door‐and is sure to grab the attention of students and colleagues.

The Humanities are more important to global society than ever.
