This is the second in Delmarva Today's three-part series on the humanities and their contribution to culture in the United States. The first session reviewed the history and nature of the humanities, how they became institutionalized, and how they helped define the identity of our country. This Friday's Delmarva Today reviews the crisis in the humanities at the university level and in our national identity.
Wilson's guests for this session are Adam Wood, a professor in the English Department at Salisbury University, James King, also a member of the Salisbury faculty in the English Department who is developing the African studies program. And Kara French, a professor of history at the University and director of the Gender Studies Program.
