Discussion of Doctoral Study Report Continues

In an article in Inside Higher Ed, Russell Berman, former MLA president and lead author of the report of the Task Force on Doctoral Study in Modern Language and Literature, weighs in on the continuing discussion about the report’s recommendations.  Berman writes, “Doctoral study in the humanities fields contributes to the quality of society, it answers individual students’ desire for intellectual depth, and it is a vital piece in the intellectual diversity of universities. If we want to preserve it, we need to reform it.”
