Video Recording of Humanities Roundtable Now Online

A video recording of “The Humanities and the MLA Today,” a roundtable discussion held in October by Columbia University’s Maison Française, is now available on the From the President blog. The roundtable featured Marianne Hirsch, 2013 MLA president; Mary Louise Pratt, former MLA president; Pierre Force, dean of humanities, Columbia University; and Carlos Alonso, member of the MLA Task Force on Graduate Education and dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Columbia. Panelists considered current debates about the future of humanities education, the politics of language in the age of globalization, publishing and scholarly communication in the digital age, and the future of graduate education.
