Journal Announcement for HUMANIST


Last year this scholarly journal moved its editorial office to The
Pennsylvania State University, where it is now under the editorship of Roger
L. Geiger, with associate editorship under Roger L. Williams. Published in
a new, expanded format, the move to Penn State was inspired by the
conviction that the history of higher education has entered a period of
renewed vitality.

The ANNUAL is the sole journal in the United States devoted to the study of
the history of higher education. It aspires to advance the understanding
and interpretation of this field through the publication of referreed
articles and review essays of significant publications. It is thus intended
as a resource for scholars and students in history, the history of higher
education, and higher education.

The latest volume (Vol. 13, 1993) is the second annual issued since moving
the journal's editorial office. The articles in this volume (listed below)
all deal with the theme of the modern university and its eneluctable
adaptations to the proliferation of knowledge. Together, these studies
deepen our appreciation of the protean nature of the modern university,
surely one of its most fundamental and baffling qualities.
