Accreditation Is Eyed as a Means to Aid Adjuncts

Faculty Pay, around the World
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A new analysis of faculty salaries at public universities worldwide—designed to make comparisons possible by focusing on purchasing power, not pure salaries—finds that Canada offers the best faculty pay among twenty-eight countries analyzed. Canada comes out on top for those newly entering the academic profession, average salaries among all professors, and those at the senior levels. In terms of average faculty salaries based on purchasing power, the United States ranks fifth, behind not only its northern neighbor, but also Italy, South Africa, and India. More

UK Loosens Visa Restrictions for Non-European Union Artists
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Home Office has relaxed its immigration rules for non–European Union artists who are temporarily visiting the United Kingdom. The previous "points-based immigration system" effectively classed visiting non-EU artists as migrants and forced them into long, and sometimes unsuccessful, visa application processes. It drew widespread criticism from the art world and London's municipal government, but despite the change, it seems there is still some progress to be made on the issue. More

In Europe, Where Art Is Life, Ax Falls on Public Financing
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Europe's economic problems, and the austerity programs meant to address them, are forcing arts institutions there to curtail programs, tours, and grants. As a result, some ensembles are scaling down their productions and trying to raise money from private donors, some in the United States, potentially putting them in competition with American arts organizations. For Americans used to seeing the best and most adventuresome European culture on tour in this country, the belt-tightening is beginning to affect both the quantity and quality of arts exchanges.

"Containing Multitudes": Hide/Seek Journeys West
Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture, which originated at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in October 2010, opened at the Tacoma Art Museum on March 17, the final and only West Coast appearance for an exhibition that was also shown at the Brooklyn Museum during winter 2011–12. The story of how Hide/Seek came to Tacoma is an unusual and interesting one, one that says something about the importance of the exhibition and its place in contemporary cultural—and museum—politics.

The Difficulty of Citing Tweets
American Historical Association    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Not long after the Modern Language Association (MLA) published its protocol for how to cite a tweet, its executive director tweeted that she'd gotten four calls in one morning from reporters asking about it. It would be nice to think that this was a demonstration of an abiding concern in the journalism profession on getting it right, and citing it right, but as the MLA statement lays out, even when you want to cite a tweet correctly it can be difficult to do so.

Future Tense, VII: What's a Museum?
New Criterion    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What's a museum? Lately, it seems, the answer is whatever we want. Today's museums can be tourist attractions, department stores, civic centers, town squares, catalysts of urban renewal, food courts, licensing brands, showcases for contemporary architecture, social clubs, LEED-certified environmentally conscious facilities, and franchise opportunities. A "well-run museum is eerily like an upscale suburban shopping mall," says an article in the New York Times. A cafe with "art on the side," advertises London's Victoria and Albert Museum. "We are in the entertainment business, and competing against other forms of entertainment out there," says a one-time spokesman for the Guggenheim Museum. More
