But the generative humanities are emphatically not about training for a market. They are, instead, like all great pedagogies that preceded them, education for an environment. The social, political, and ecological challenges of the 21st century demand significantly more than textual analysis or recitations of inherited content. These problems (and opportunities) will need people trained to create synthetic responses, rich with meaning and purpose, and capable of communicating in a range of appropriate media, including but not limited to print.

Just curious… How are they using “generative humanities” as a term?Is this meant to be a substitution for digital humanities, a way of sidestepping DH backlash?
