Abstract: There has been much written about the crisis in humanities education. Most of this published debate arises from scholars in Western universities and, at some level, can be seen as a reflection of a crisis about the nature of education and the role of universities in contemporary times in these societies. The crisis in humanities in places like India has been a part of their educational concerns for quite some time, but in this essay, Sarukkai argues that the quality of the crisis and the challenge to humanities education in India are different. For a globally sensitive humanities program, these different kinds of responses to humanities have to be taken into account.
