Stefan Collini, Onora O’Neill, and Rens Bod present us with a more accurate picture of what goes on in the humanities today.
Their three essays highlight the worldliness of the humanities in this book edited by Anders Engberg-Pedersen, a Danish Professor of Comparative Literature. ”We need a better account of what the humanities are, what humanist scholars do and how they do it, what is done with the knowledge they produce, and how this knowledge seeps into society and other institutions and sciences through multiple channels to shape our common world.”
