    The Humanities And The University: Craig Calhoun Interviewed.Peter Vale - forthcoming - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education:147402221875791.
    In this interview Craig Calhoun talks about universities, the Humanities and his own research. Universities reinvent themselves in the face of societal and technological change. In the midst of this change, however, universities are charged with maintaining old ideals, with informing the public and creating opportunities for human development.

The increasing emphasis on utilitarian forms of knowledge needed for economic growth further imperilled the Humanities. In South (...)
