The English Major, Secretly Resilient: The Case of UC-Berkeley
Professor Scott Saul’s recent New York Times op-ed (“The Humanities in Decline? Not at Most Schools”) actually began as a post written for our humble blog. When the New York Times expressed interest in Saul’s piece, the editors of the blog happily ceded our claim on it to the Times op-ed page. We now see the value in publishing what didn’t make it into the version published by the Times, and so are sharing Saul’s original post.
