I haven't updated my blog recently due to the new quarter and a new series of articles I am writing for the Stanford Review. I am looking at the changing role of the humanities in university education, especially at Stanford. The first piece looks at the history of higher education and how its changing structure has helped and (mostly) hindered the development of the humanities over the past 100+ years. It is available online at http://stanfordreview.org/article/fraying-at-the-edges.
