Kickstarter Isn't an NEA Substitute, It's Another Part of the Arts Funding Ecosystem
ARTSblog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Talking Points Memo's Idea Lab recently posted an article that included an interview with the Kickstarter cofounder Yancey Strickler. While Kickstarter has the ability to take all types of art—from comics to operas—to the next level at a time when it is hard for an artist to get funding for a small project, it's $150 million contribution to the arts is only one quarter of one percent of what is needed annually to fund the nonprofit arts sector's $60 billion in expenditures, according to Randy Cohen, vice president of research and policy at Americans for the Arts.

Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Colleges increasingly rely on part-time faculty to teach, but when it comes to giving them voting rights to decide issues before the professoriate, many institutions are reluctant. Officials of Boston University's Faculty Council have announced that the Faculty Assembly voted to approve assembly membership for lecturers with half-time appointments or more. Online voting took place from November to March 1, and the measure passed with an approval rate of more than 90 percent. More

Radical but Not Tenured: Reflections from an Unemployed ABD
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I am crawling to the finish line of graduate school with six publications, one mostly-finished dissertation, two major teaching awards, and no job. As I wait to go on the market again next year, I'm doing my best to embrace what Jack Halberstam calls the new ways of being opened up by failure. These benefits include the time and space to figure out what I've been doing for the past six years. In this spirit, I offer you four versions of this story: Superhero Sam, Naked Sam, Terrorist Sam, and CV Sam. More

Should Professors Use Facebook to Communicate with Students?
Faculty Focus    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nearly 85 percent of faculty have Facebook accounts, two-thirds are on LinkedIn, and 50 percent use Twitter, according to research from Faculty Focus. But professors' use of social media shows we are behind the relationship curve when it comes to connecting with students. Only 32 percent have friended undergrad students, and about half (55 percent) connect with some students after graduation. Some faculty may be hesitant to friend students on Facebook. More

An Academic Hopes to Take the MLA into the Social Web
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A blog post changed Kathleen Fitzpatrick's professional life. Now she's helping to infuse the spirit of blogging into scholarly societies and shaking up academic publishing in the process. In 2006 Fitzpatrick, now 44, was an associate professor of English at Pomona College, struggling to get her first scholarly book published. The text was finished, and it had been favorably reviewed twice, but it remained in limbo as she searched for a publisher, leaving the ideas locked on private hard drives. In a post on a blog called The Valve, she proposed that scholars should share their draft monographs online and let them go through peer review the way blog posts do—with comments by knowledgeable colleagues.

Occupy Criticism, Occupy Spring
Brooklyn Rail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The current essay series invites critics to address "what many have described as a crisis for the state of art criticism" in the past decade, a period in which the authority of an academic venue such as October has allegedly declined due to a "combination of political and economic shifts, technological advances, and, perhaps, a fatigue with 'theory.'" Critics responding to a crisis in criticism: this is indeed familiar territory in recent years, especially in light of debates about contemporaneity, globalization, and the market. More

Cal State's Online Plan
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The California State University System released new documents describing its plans for a centralized online learning hub, moving the system closer to its vision of a top-flight virtual campus while drawing skepticism from some faculty. The portal, called Cal State Online, will serve as a gateway to all virtual courses offered by the system's twenty-three campuses. The goal is to increase capacity at California State, where massive budget cuts have coincided with a rising demand for higher-ed degrees. System officials hope a centrally administered approach to online education will enable the university to enroll more online students and turn away fewer qualified applicants. More
