Hey, quick question, you're a humanities professor? That is excellent and interesting: I am currently looking around for a list of the best Humanities departments in the country... places that do Liberal Arts and Classics really well and that might offer PhD programs. Any info/suggestions are MUCH appreciated.

My email is nick.a.smyth(at)gmail dot com, if you'd rather keep such discussion private.

Sorry Nick, I really don't know... while I am a Humanities professor, I'm not invested in the hierarchal rankings of universities

good luck
