Andrew Delbanco, “Enough Already: Why Are the Humanities Always in Crisis?”

In the opening talk of this year’s Public Intellectuals Forum, Andrew Delbanco, director of American Studies at Columbia University, will bring a historical-literary perspective to the current economic and political crisis and its implications for the ubiquitous “crisis in the humanities.” Now, as the balance between financial means and intellectuals ends is becoming increasingly precarious in higher education, Delbanco asks and answers hard questions about how universities pay for what they do and whether the humanities and a liberal arts education can remain relevant in the emerging “post-crisis” paradigm for American universities, both public and private.  

This talk will be discussion-focused; advance reading selections will be available on the Public Intellectuals Forum website: http://publicforum.ucdavis.edu

This event is free and open to all. Talks begin at 5:30 pm and are followed by a no-host reception at 7 pm.

The Public Intellectuals Forum is sponsored by UC Davis Humanities Institute and the Center for History, Society and Culture
