Professor Miller will discuss his new book Blow Up the Humanities. A short, sharp, and provocative book, Blow Up the Humanities asserts that there are now two humanities within academia. One is the venerable, powerful humanities of private universities; the other is the humanities of state schools, which focus mainly on job prospects.

There is a class division between the two – both in terms of faculty research and student background – and it must end. Prof Miller examines scholarly publishing as well as media and cultural studies to show how to restructure the humanities by studying popular cultural phenomena, like video games. Prof Miller ultimately insists that these two humanities must merge in order to survive and succeed in producing an aware and concerned citizenry.
