Paula Krebs and the Case for the Humanities

Paula Krebs, the Executive Director of the Modern Language Association, has been advocating for the humanities during this critical moment as forces seek to ban books, diminish support for humanities, and news reports speak on the death of English. Below, I'm charting some statements from Krebs as well as announcements about humanities talks she's given.
