For some time now, the humanities, both in Israel and abroad, have been undergoing a crisis, which is primarily economic but also cultural. This crisis seems to have a dual nature: On the one hand, it appears to result from a cultural and political climate that deems the humanities irrelevant. On the other hand, the humanities seem to have lost their sense of cultural relevance, thereby paradoxically contributing to the very crisis they are suffering from.
