The End of the English Major: How Tik-Tok Brain is in Conflict with the Humanities

April 13, 2023 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

The English Major is disappearing, should we let it die? What are the root causes behind this and how might it find a place in the future, if its even worth saving? Join Brent Lucia on this discussion.

As a once English studies graduate student, I have a stake in this conversation, but I’m curious to hear from others from other disciplines who find the humanities important or valuable. So much of what we do now – thanks to emerging technologies such as TikTok – seem to be slashing our attention spans and helping us work and learn more flexibly. How does the English major then find a place in modernity?
