In addition to English and History among the non-Ethnicity or Gender Studies departments, there are also the social science departments: Religion, Sociology, Anthropology, and Geography and Geographic Information Science. So three social science departments (I'd say Religion is localized anthropology / sociology) and one that is split between social science and a technical discipline. Then the language / literature / cultural studies departments (English fitting in here as well), French & Italian, East Asian, and Comparative & World Literature. Then there is the Education people, who I think would have had an official vote of no confidence rather than simply a statement signed by 16 faculty members if it weren't for the opposition of Nick Burbules.
