Literature, philosophy, and history enrich our lives by allowing us to tell our stories, connect with one another, and make sense of our world. These subjects teach us how to think: to analyze language critically, to use evidence to make arguments, and to navigate an increasingly connected world. Not only are these the skills in demand in the workforce, but they make for a vibrant society. Here we put a spotlight on stories that show how the humanities touch our lives: from the role of the humanities in science and technology to recent studies on how language learning shapes the future of education.
