Some of you may have heard Obama's recent swipe at art history majors. There's been a bit of a backlash, as you would imagine, that has been playing out in popular media in the days since. In the wake of that conversation, this is the most thoughtful piece of writing that I came across (it was written long before Obama's comments). Even if you have no stake in the controversy, if you're interested in the humanities, it is well worth your time to read.
