Book Lovers Fear Dim Future for Notes in the Margins
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Locked in a climate-controlled vault at the Newberry Library in Chicago, a volume titled The Pen and the Book can be studied only under the watch of security cameras. The book, about making a profit in publishing, scarcely qualifies as a literary masterpiece. It is highly valuable, instead, because a reader has scribbled in the margins of its pages. More

University of Louisiana Board Approves Rules to Ease Firing of Tenured Faculty
The Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The University of Louisiana system's Board of Supervisors voted to approve new rules that will allow its institutions to more quickly dismiss faculty members, even those with tenure, whose programs have been closed. At a time when the state's financial climate makes it difficult for campuses to determine their budgets from year to year, that kind of flexibility is key, system officials said. More

Save Academic Freedom
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Tenure is disappearing. Corporate and government interests are interfering with academic research. And since the US Supreme Court's 2006 ruling in Garcetti v. Ceballos, the courts are suggesting that faculty members who speak out on governance may be punished, and even fired. "Academic freedom now confronts challenges powerful enough to ask not what its future will be," writes Cary Nelson, president of the American Association of University Professors, in No University Is an Island: Saving Academic Freedom, "but whether it will have a future at all."

Charitable Deduction Limit: Bad for Art Nonprofits?
National Public Radio    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In an effort to reduce the deficit, President Obama hopes to limit the charitable deduction for the top income bracket. That is, wealthy donors who itemize would not be able to deduct as much from their income to owe less in taxes. Charities—which are already hurting from the economic downturn—are worried this will discourage potential donors. More

How a Kidnapping Hurled France and Mexico into a Diplomatic Art Feud    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the French town of Saint-Romain-en-Gal, distraught Mexican curators started packing two hundred ancient art objects to be shipped back to their country before they could be seen by the public. Meanwhile, ten massive statues by the Mexican artist Rivelino, which were to have traveled by boat down the Seine, remained stranded in Rotterdam. These are just some of the consequences of a diplomatic imbroglio that has pitted Mexico and France against each other, and has threatened the artistic events surrounding the celebration of France's Year of Mexico.

Bulbous Bodies, Ornate Design Intrigue in Gossaert Show
Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sexual freedom, bizarre fashions, new media, an obsession with nudity, wild architectural excess: Some things never change. In lots of ways, the early sixteenth century sounds much like the early twenty-first. That's one of the lessons of a new exhibition at the National Gallery in London, Jan Gossaert's Renaissance. This is a show with an intriguing theme: how the Italian Renaissance traveled to northern Europe. There are some splendid paintings on show as well as some strange and even hideous ones. Their oddness and occasional ugliness is part of the story. More

Côté and Allahar, both professors of sociology at the University of Western Ontario, responded to email questions about the book. More
