Abstract: There are two humanities in the United States. One is the venerable, powerful humanities of private universities; the other is the humanities of state schools, which focus mainly on job prospects. There is a class division between the two – both in terms of faculty research and student background – and it must end. I explain the costs of this division both conceptually and empirically.

Blow up the Humanities’ is also the title one of Toby’s new books which has been reviewed in The Higher Education (THE) and The Los Angeles Review of Books (LARB).
