Maud Newton: Culture, politics and of course, literature, come together in one seriously cool, intelligent blog for the hip humanities fan. And yes, hip humanities fans exist.

Wow. You have to assure us that "hip humanities fans exist?" I'd say languagehat is a good example of a hip humanities fan. But really, when did art, music, literature, history and philosophy become Guy Lombardo? Science, sports, computers and medicine may be useful, but they ain't hip.

Cool! And let's not forget MeFi's own myl, who runs Language Log, deservedly first on the list of language blogs.

Humanities major here. (Yes, there is -- or at least was -- such a thing as a BA in humanities!)

Thank you!

FWIW, MIT currently offers a BS in Humanities.
(technically, it is SB. But same-same)

Can we please lay off Guy Lombardo for once?

The only history is art history?

Nice ones. Here's one more for the list on media, teaching, beer, and Detroit.

Oh man! They forgot my favorite, Heteronomous starring Adam freaking Kotsko, boy genius of theology and the humanities.

I was completely psyched when I found out he accepted a teaching position at Kalamazoo College - right before I moved away to Memphis. Ah well, his blog rocks.
