But still she wonders: Isn’t this the responsibility of our art teacher? My business is imagery created through words; hers is imagery created in other ways.

Explorations in Critical Humanities: A Collection of Essays

This fall Roanoke College is inaugurating a new general education curriculum aptly named Intellectual Inquiry. In order to address the gap in perception between faculty and students on the importance of a core curriculum ("Why Do I Have to Take This Class?"), the D. L. Jordan Endowment for the Humanities solicited from Roanoke College faculty personal essays dealing with the significance of a core curriculum to their experience as students, citizens, and professors. The essays selected serve as a showcase for the Roanoke College faculty as a community of diverse and independent critical thinkers who connect their experiences to that of their students. Our hope is that these essays will inspire students to pursue their own education with greater vigor and self-reflection.

This is no coincidence. Digital Humanities enabled the creation of new pools of funding specifically devoted to an entirely new conception of the humanities that was promulgated by a small minority within English departments. Why these funders chose to do this remains something of a mystery. To find precise explanations, we would need to have access to private conversations and communications, though it is remarkable that such an epoch-making shift can be so lacking in explicit justification. What we do know is that in the early 2000s, both Mellon and NEH began devoting unusually large amounts of resources to these projects, while leaving the rest of their funding streams largely unchanged, and that this had more influence than anything else in raising the profile of Digital Humanities by creating an expectation of reward for those working on the lines laid down at the aforementioned University of Virginia humanities computing and Digital Humanities events (the latter of which was funded by the NEH in both of the years that it ran).
