        Subject: Humanities and Social Sciences at stake in a Swiss newspaper

Dear all,

An important Swiss newspaper, Le Temps, has published yesterday an 
article entitled "Should we reduce Humanities in Switzerland?". The 
topic is of course related to the Japanese situation, but also to 
internal Swiss debates, since a political movement has proposed during 
the summer to cut 50% of the SSH students in our country.

Two people are interviewed, economical questions are of course at stake, 
as well as the small size of our country. E-learning is proposed as 
substitute for certain fields...
