What is Happening to the Humanities?

  • St Peter’s 211 Willis St Wellington New Zealand (map)

Between institutional closures (RIP Whitireia Creative Writing) and a decline in enrolments it looks like we are turning away from the Humanities. Authors Mandy Hager, Selina Tusitala Marsh and Associate Professor Sarah Ross discuss with RNZ’s Lynn Freeman why this is happening and what we must do to reassert the value of a Humanities education.
