Arts and Humanities Endowments Would Edge Up under Obama's Budget
Chronicle of Higher Education
Federal funds for the National Endowments for the Arts and for the Humanities would remain stable under President Barack Obama's proposed budget for the 2014 fiscal year. His budget proposal, released last week, would raise each endowment's budgets by roughly $200,000, to $154.5 million for the coming fiscal year. The two endowments offer grants to colleges for research and fellowships in the arts and humanities, among other activities.

Video of Instructor at USC Sets Off Controversy, but Is Context Missing?
Inside Higher Ed

How Photographers Joined the Self-Publishing Revolution
The Guardian
Having long since shaken off the kind of stigma that still attaches to, say, self-published fiction, the self-published photobook is currently a mini-phenomenon within the bigger thriving culture of photography book publishing. The wider context for this DIY approach is the availability of relatively cheap digital technology and the attendant rise of social media–led networking, which allows photographers to disseminate, market, and sell their own books without recourse to the traditional artist–publisher relationship.

Cell Phones in the Classroom: What's Your Policy
Faculty Focus
Are we old fuddy-duddies when we ask (demand) students to put away their cell phones in the classroom or clinical areas? Students tell me this is just the way it is now, but I disagree. What is the answer to this problem? Are faculty members being too demanding by placing cell-phone restrictions in syllabi or clinical handbooks?

Advocates Say Ethnic Studies Misunderstood, Needlessly under Fire
Diverse Issues in Higher Education
Ron Scapp, president of the National Association for Ethnic Studies, exited the airplane headed to his annual board meeting last week in Fort Collins, Colorado, ready to galvanize ethnic-studies program chairs from colleges across the country. He said he felt a sense of urgency because there were too many headlines in the news recently that might have detrimental consequences for ethnic-studies programs across the board.

Why Not a Two-Tier System?
Chronicle of Higher Education
In recent years, some very smart people—such as Michael Bérubé, Marc Bousquet, Anthony Grafton, and William Pannapacker—have offered their thoughts about how to fix graduate education and, by extension, the academic labor market, which, we all seem to agree, has "unraveled." I approach this issue from a different perspective: as someone who does not work at a prestigious research university but rather at a two-year teaching college; as someone with several decades of experience on faculty search committees; and as someone who does not hold a PhD but instead something much closer to what Bérubé describes as "a rigorous four-year MA."

Pragmatic Advising
Inside Higher Ed
My students, especially soon-to-be master's-degree recipients, frequently ask about whether PhD programs are a good career path. Given the difficulties of this job market, even for students in a professional program who have experience in the field, the prospect of a PhD can seem like a permanent safe harbor. Appearances deceive, though, as a tight academic job market and a deepening reliance on adjuncts make even employment after the PhD a difficult proposition. It's no surprise, then, that there's been an increasingly strident pushback to the idea that PhDs are necessary.
