What Do Students Think of “A New History of the Humanities”?

While I often discuss my book with students in college (from the Netherlands to the US), it’s rare to find a blog where students’ opinions are open to the rest of the world. Until I found these blogs from Cornell College. Thrilling to read and mind provoking! While I would of course love to reply to all the students’ questions and thoughts, I think that’s too intrusive. But if I ever meet them, I will give them a “high five” too! They made me think deeper, for which I’m really grateful. Here’s a selection of the blogs:
