The MLA's Big (Digital) Tent
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In recent years, big conversations at and about the annual meeting of the Modern Language Association have been driven by two major and ongoing forces of change: the increasingly bleak economic realities of the profession (and particularly the shift of jobs away from the tenure track) and the ways that new technologies are transforming scholarly work in the humanities—and scholarly communications in general.

Arts Organizations and Digital Technologies
Pew Internet and American Life Project    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Pew Research Center designed a survey to understand how arts organizations are using the internet, social media, and other digital technologies to connect with the public. Most participating organizations strongly or somewhat agree with the statements that technology and social media have made art a more participatory experience, and that they have helped make art audiences more diverse. Yet the majority of respondents also say that technology contributes to an expectation that "all digital content should be free." More

Creative Aging: The Emergence of Artistic Talents
The Atlantic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I always wished I had true musical or artistic talent. There being none, I became a physician. Five years ago, I starting taking guitar lessons and hoped that I would be amazed by some "hidden" talent that would reveal itself to me and the rest of the world. Although I continue to practice every day and enjoy my musical adventure, the talent part remains elusive, if not totally hidden. But this is not the case for everyone. There are people who start to paint or play a musical instrument later in life and become very accomplished—often only when their brain begins to deteriorate. More

What Is the Role of Art in the Wake of Tragedy?
Washington City Paper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Economist gave the United States a whole weekend to mourn the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre before telling the entire nation to suck it up. "Those of us who view the events remotely ... unless we start to evince a newfound appetite for gun-control measures to prevent future mass slayings, are doing little more than displaying and enjoying our own exalted strickenness," writes one M. S. "This is an activity at which we, as a culture, excel." More

Authenticating Picasso
Art News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Pablo Picasso could be capricious when it came to authenticating his own work. On one occasion, he refused to sign a canvas he knew he had painted, saying, "I can paint false Picassos just as well as anybody." On another, he refused to sign an authentic painting, explaining to the woman who had brought it to him, "If I sign it now, I'll be putting my 1943 signature on a canvas painted in 1922. No, I cannot sign it, madam, I'm sorry." Even today, forty years after the artist's death, the question of how his heirs exercise their right under French law to authenticate his work is a knotty one. More

What Enters the Public Domain in 2013 as Defined by Copyright Laws?
Copyrightlaws.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Although commonly used in copyright parlance, the phrase "public domain" is often misunderstood. Public domain is commonly used to refer to content that is not protected by copyright law. Determining if a work is in the public domain in the United States is fairly complicated due to various factors such as different durations for different works and amendments in US copyright laws.
