Critical Mass

Are the Humanities dying?

That was the starting question for my chat with Jim Mora on Critical Mass today.

It started with a column by Graeme Turner in the Australian: In the thrall purely to science.

That inspired two posts at Larvatus Prodeo by Mark Bahnisch here and here.

In one of those he referred to Stanley Fish: The Crisis of the Humanities Officially Arrives.

Club Troppo responded with The Humanities: passed on or just pining for the fjords?

We also briefly touched on the Technorati State of the Blogosphere 2010.
