Tenure's Dirty Little Secret
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It seems that tenure is always in the news. Long an article of faith for most faculty members, tenure is being put on the defensive almost everywhere, including within the academy itself. During the past decade, the numbers of tenured and tenure-track professors have sharply declined from nearly one-half of the faculty to about one-third. Most courses in four-year colleges and universities as well as community colleges are now taught by contingent faculty, including part-time adjuncts, graduate students, and holders of full-time nontenure-track positions. Does anyone care? More

What to Ask about Adjuncts
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Modern Language Association is among the many academic groups that have called for better treatment of those off the tenure track. The association, since 2003, has called for departments to hire adjuncts in professional ways, to provide as much job security as possible, to involve these instructors in departmental life, to provide clear information about evaluations and promotion opportunities, and so forth.

2011: The Year Intellectual Property Trumped Civil Liberties
Wired    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Online civil-liberties groups were thrilled in May when Senator Patrick Leahy, the head of the powerful Judiciary Committee, announced legislation requiring the government, for the first time, to get a probable-cause warrant to obtain Americans' email and other content stored in the cloud. But, despite the backing of a coalition of powerful tech companies, the bill to amend the Electronic Communications Privacy Act was dead on arrival, never even getting a hearing before the committee Leahy heads. This dichotomy played itself out over and again in 2011, as lawmakers turned a blind eye to important civil-liberties issues, including Patriot Act reform, and instead paid heed to the content industry's desires to stop piracy.

Online Piracy Bill Has Free Speech Supporters Up in Arms
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A bill being considered by a House of Representatives committee could divide the art world into two camps: those who want to protect their creations from being used online and those who like to use the work of others. The measure would impose criminal fines and allow the United States government and individuals to shut down websites for alleged infringement. Critics say the steps would restrain free speech and cause service providers to filter out content they were unsure of. More

Louvre's Leonardo Was Overcleaned, Say Art Experts
Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

This Is Not a Tax, Says Boston's Mayor
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Museum of Fine Arts was dismayed to learn that the city of Boston is requesting a payment of $250,000 this year under new rules for the amount that nonprofit organizations have to pay in lieu of taxes. The city plans to quadruple the bill to more than $1 million by 2016. The steep rise in contributions is a result of the Mayor Thomas Menino's revised Payment in Lieu of Taxes scheme, known as PILOT. The art museums, and the city's other nonprofit organizations owning property that is worth more than $15 million, face paying a fee that is based on 25 percent of what they would have to pay if they were charged the city's commercial tax.

Books That Are Never Done Being Written
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I recently got a glimpse into the future of books. A few months ago, I dug out a handful of old essays I'd written about innovation, combined them into a single document, and uploaded the file to Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing service. Two days later, my little ebook was on sale at Amazon's site. The whole process couldn't have been simpler. Then I got the urge to tweak a couple of sentences in one of the essays. I made the edits on my computer and sent the revised file back to Amazon. The company quickly swapped out the old version for the new one. More
