I thought this article was terrible.

It isn't as if literature hasn't always been political. Consider who Dante puts in inferno as opposed to paradise, for example. So complaining that somehow the literary has been reduced to the political is bizarre. It is also ahistorical. Literature professors like philosophy professors were strongly incentivized to be apolitical in the 40s and 50s because of widespread fear of communists. And the turn from literature studies to cultural studies doesn't seem like its giving up the game. It is recognizing that media in the age of television and now internet has changed. The stories we engage with are found less in the pages of a book and more on a screen. So why wouldn't we study and investigate these other mediums?

I hate it when English lit is taken to be representative of the humanities as a whole. Their problems are most emphatically not our problems.
