Description

The humanistic disciplines in our universities, especially the study of literature and the arts, have become notorious for frivolity, obscurity, modishness, and ideological grandstanding. Do they have a future? Should they? Steven Justice, who has taught in the nation's premier English department for thirty years, argued that they should and do, and that current pressures offer a promising chance to reform them.
