Current state of the humanities in 3 minutes

Eva von Dassow clearly articulates the academic reality of the humanities today. I would imagine that as a professor of classical and Near Eastern studies her discipline is on the potential list of programs to be cut. Regardless, what she says about the plight of U of Minn could be applied to most state institutions. At my own institution, for example, we just cut the French program, and this happens to be at a university in Louisiana.
