In considering how we might revise the English major, how much thought should we give to ensuring that the major "keeps up" with changes in our culture, especially changes in the media of self-expression and critical reflection?
Some things to consider here:

- Is it worth our while to try to remain relevant to a future whose shape can't be predicted?
- What are the risks of not remaining relevant?
