A new website offers free posters, postcards, and handouts that dispel misconceptions about humanities majors.

Illinois-Chicago). “Whether you believe these ideas are deliberate lies or simply common misperceptions, if you care about the humanities, you need to push back.”
The site features PDFs formatted in different sizes to print out and display or distribute. For example:
