The Bane of Their Existence: Making Interdisciplinary Humanities Matter

At many colleges and universities, there exist general education requirements in the so-called “interdisciplinary humanities.” Most students, even those majoring in the humanities, don’t look forward to these classes—which can be large and unwieldy—and they don’t regard them as especially important in their own degree trajectories. Students seem to think that they won’t learn anything, that they will have to endure lecture after lecture, write a couple of papers, take a final, and forget the rest. And, all too often, professors and graduate students saddled with the task of teaching these courses feel the same way. What might we do about this? Are there ways to make general education courses in the humanities interesting and engaging for all involved?
