The State of the Humanities
January 7, 2009 Flotsam and Jetsam

Of humanities bachelor’s degrees, the largest share (about one third) are awarded in English. The indicators note that while ethnic, cultural and gender studies have seen dramatic increases in scholarly interest in recent decades, that hasn’t been matched by undergraduate majors, with less than 2 percent of degrees awarded in the humanities going to those fields.

From Inside Higher Ed. I wonder if English departments are viewed as the “Evil Empire” amongst the humanists?
