Join us for a conversation with Jonathan Holloway, incoming president of Rutgers University, and Melissa Nobles, MIT’s Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, as they discuss current trends in the humanities and how they might change as a result of our current crisis. The American Academy recently released its latest data from our Humanities Indicators Project, showing trends related to teaching, enrollments, and degrees granted in the humanities departments at colleges and universities across the country. The discussion will begin with a brief overview of the report’s highlights from Rob Townsend, Director of the Humanities Indicators, followed by remarks by Holloway and Nobles and Q&A moderated by Academy President David Oxtoby.

Please register to join us via Zoom videoconference. Registrants will be accommodated on a space-available basis. A Zoom video conference link and instructions for logging into the discussion will be sent via email two days before the event. 

The conversation will be recorded and posted online.
