This series of 6 lectures is intended for graduates and undergraduates interested in the challenge of how we best defend the work of the humanities in today’s context. The lectures offer a critical taxonomy of the ways advocacy for the humanities conventionally proceeds. The aim is to put the arguments through their paces: to work out the strengths and weakness of each kind of justification.
