This chapter examines important changes that have come to the humanities in Ireland since the nineties. It examines how the IRCHSS and the HEA have radically transformed funding arrangements in the humanities. It also looks at how recent reports by the HEA – the Hunt Report – and by the British Government – the Browne Report – have served to overlook the importance of the humanities for a general education. It concludes by pointing to important opportunities available to the humanities in the Irish context.
