What are the Humanities For?

THE WORK OF THE HUMANITIES

CRISIS, PUBLICS, AND THE GOOD LIFE

How do the Humanities (and humanists) have value in academia, industry, nonprofits, and government settings? How is it that humanists even talk about "value" in the first place?

Is it all just about reading Proust and drinking coffee?

Originally a course at the University of Chicago, "The Work of the Humanities" engages in these questions through contemporary texts and conversations with practicing humanists in diverse fields.

(It was super fun to teach).
