What Exactly Is Critical Thinking?
Inside Higher Ed

Artists in Egypt Work in a Tense Atmosphere
Los Angeles Times
The Muslim women in Marwa Adel's photographs are shadows, repressed by custom, religion, marriage, and regret. While nude, the figures are obscured by sepia scrims, scrawled upon with stifling words—as if their true selves may never be known. Like their creator, a single mother edging at the bounds of artistic freedom in a patriarchal society, the images are at once vulnerable and defiant.

Decompressing Salaries
Inside Higher Ed
It's a dilemma many universities face: how to attract new, top faculty with competitive salaries without being unfair to senior professors, whose salaries often are tied to a pay scale or plan that hasn't kept up with the outside market. Weighing recruiting needs against a desire to alleviate the morale-busting effect of salary compression on faculty, one Midwest university has launched a series of initiatives to address it.

In Search of a Good Critique
Chronicle of Higher Education
From the hiring side of the table, we've all seen job candidates who seem to be doing well only to fall flat in one venue: they ace the teaching demo and the dinner meeting but stumble during the research talk. Perhaps the candidate was disorganized, too strident, or just long winded and boring. Whatever the cause, the outcome is a strong negative ding when it comes time to vote on the hire.

Less Is More: The Rise of the Very Limited Edition
Art Newspaper
Good design used to be a simple matter. Was the object easy to use? Simple in appearance? Made from high-quality materials? Value for money? Those were the important questions. But today design is significantly more complex. Before a product ever gets to a consumer, it has usually been subjected to investment analysis, prototype development, focus-group discussion, and advertising campaigns.

Why It's Time for Galleries to Dump the Jargon
The Independent
Do you like nature, and art? If so, you might like something called On Vanishing Land, produced by the British "sound artists and theorists" Mark Fisher and Justin Barton. What they've produced, which will be in an art gallery called the Showroom, is "a new form of sonic fiction from the dreamings, gleamings, and prefigurations that pervade the Suffolk coast." Themes "of incursion" by "unnameable forces, geological sentience, or temporary anomaly" will, apparently, "recur throughout."

Help Desk: A Uniform Presentation
Daily Serving
My question concerns the issue of a "signature style" and the importance of projecting an image of consistency, particularly on one's personal website. I've done a lot of different things and tend to work in the medium that I feel best expresses what I am trying to communicate. As a result, I've got a real mix of things: photos, text-based pieces, assemblages/sculptures, some video work. While I can personally see the threads of consistency running through the work, I've been cautioned that I need to "grow up, pick one thing, and get known for it."

The Price of a Bad Review

Librarian questions quality of a publishing house. Librarian publicly criticizes said press on his personal blog. Two years later, librarian and current employer get sued for libel and damages in excess of $4 million.
