Despite an increasingly grim job market outlook, the humanities continues to produce PhDs in large numbers. Between 2007 and 2017, the number of available Assistant Professor positions in the field of English dropped from 879 to 320. During the same time period, the number of non-tenure-track positions increased from 21% to 34%. Yet in 2016, 5,500 doctorates were still awarded despite the massive post-2008 decrease in obtainable positions. As Vimal Patel wrote in a Chronicle article from September 2018, “The mirage has vanished.

Decolonizing the Digital Archive
In recent years we have witnessed a proliferation of digital archival work – often (but not always) in the form of open access platforms developed to gather, preserve, and share historical documents. The very nature of open accessibility counters a rhetoric of retreat and the construction of barriers among knowledge producers and consumers – by refusing ownership over its content and seeking collaborative and communal engagement in both interpretational and curatorial work, open access digital archives are often decentralized archives that provide modes for democratic access, exchange, and co-construction of knowledge.
Making Connections, the first Humanities Commons Twitter Conference, will take place July 18th, 2019.
EXTENSION: Proposals are due June 3rd, 2019.

The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”.

As the twentieth century witnessed the rise of film and visual media, the twenty-first century is currently witnessing the rise of video games and other such interactive media as a narrative and art form that overlaps in its scope and ambitions with the literary realm. In many language and literature departments across the globe, film is now firmly ensconced in the curriculum; video games and interactive media have already been granted their own departments at numerous larger institutions and will increasingly fall under the purview of language and literature departments at smaller schools.

Boosted by Barak Obama’s revolutionary usage of social media in 2008 to mobilize young voters and energize a new party base, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign also sought to make strategic use of social media platforms—as did her opponent’s, with dramatically different results. In 2019, rising political star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been acknowledged as a master of social media for her usage of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram—platforms where her followers number in the millions. For AOC, strategic utilization of social media in a limited congressional district campaign led directly to national prominence and increased presence within traditional print and television media platforms for her policy propositions.
