(p.119) 5 The Claim of the Humanities: A Discussion with Christopher Fynsk

Simon Morgan Wortham

Fordham University Press

This chapter presents the author's discussion with Christopher Fynsk about his book The Claim of Language, which contributes to current debates about the state of the contemporary university and makes a case for the humanities as a way to think the question of the university's future. The discussion — which took place by e-mail over a short period of two or three weeks — stages a “transatlantic” encounter and conversation between two academics interested in the predicament of the university today, and brings together different perceptions of the debate in Britain and North America.

Keywords:   Christopher Fynsk, humanities, The Claim of Language, language, university
