Ideas Matter: NY Council For The Humanities Asks: What about the Public Humanities?

Dec 6, 2013

  It seems like everyday there's a new op-ed about the "crisis in the humanities." But most of this talk concerns enrollment on college campuses and job prospects for PhD students. Is there a crisis in the public humanities? And if so, why aren't we talking about it?

For our Ideas Matter series, Mary Rizzo, Public Historian in Residence at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers University-Camden join us to talk about it.
