Faculty appointments signal humanities support

To the editor:

I don’t think I can satisfy Professor Michael Hayden’s desire for reassurance about the future of the humanities at the U of S (Letter, OCN, Jan 6, 2006). It doesn’t seem like a good idea for a historian to try to predict the future.

However, there is recent evidence – the authorization of three tenure-track positions in English and another in History in 2005 – of significant support for the humanities.

Those appointments might not guarantee the humanities’ future, but they do tell us something about the administration’s commitment to two disciplines from that area of study.


Jim Miller
Professor of History
