Ensuring a Viable Post-Pandemic Future for Scholarship in the Humanities
June 3, 2020, 11:00am – 12:00pm EDT
In this session we discuss strategies for campus leaders to recognize, sustain, and support scholarly excellence in the humanities and many social sciences. We look at peer comparisons that can provide context for critical post-pandemic decisions about resources and priorities. We demonstrate that humanities units’ strengths may often be undervalued, and that a fuller appreciation of these strengths can provide a more thoughtful basis for critical conversations among department heads, deans, and provosts.
