Ep. 15: ”The End of the English Major,” with Elizabeth Eames
Fellow Upper School English teacher Liz Eames and I discuss the New Yorker article "The End of the English Major." We explore the phenomenon, its causes, and general trends in our culture, along with shifts in university education, that take people away from serious literary study. Placing English in the center of one's education allows for increased empathy, safe places to think through and act out different futures, greater self-awareness, the companionship of stories and poems--and, yes, jobs, too!
