Some college and university campuses have been struggling with finances during the 2020-2021 school year, having suffered from loss of tuition income. This has caused a wave of disruptions in faculty ranks, departmental course offerings, and even in institutional viability. Amidst this financial uncertainty, administrators, faculty and librarians might question their commitment to support humanities scholarship, teaching, and student needs. Yet evidence remains strong that employers value the skills developed through the experience of a liberal arts education including humanities study. This presentation includes an examination of the current place of the humanities in higher education through an interview with Myriam Poort, Vice President for Humanities Publishing at Springer Nature. Of particular interest to many librarians will be a survey of rising sub-disciplines in the humanities as demonstrated by popular book titles and authors.
