State of the Humanities 2015

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences has published the latest Humanities Indicators report, The State of the Humanities:  Higher Education 2015, the latest release from the Humanities Indicator project, which features a growing collection of data and reports intended to provide a comprehensive statistical picture of the humanities.  This most recent report draws on data from the Humanities Indicators Departmental Survey of 2008 and 2013 to present measures of the health of the humanities in higher education as demonstrated by the numbers of departments, students, and faculty, and through data on digital engagement, research spending, and the publication of new academic books in the humanities.
