No Longer Appropriate?
Art Newspaper
"Appropriating" other artists' work without consent is still common, but there is growing evidence—albeit rarely reported—that, although some artists may have started out as willing or unwitting outlaws, they decided that possibly infringing other artists' copyright was legally unwise and potentially expensive, and they stopped.

The False Promise of the Digital Humanities
New Republic
The humanities are in crisis again, or still. But there is one big exception: digital humanities. In 2009, the nascent field was the talk of the Modern Language Association convention: "among all the contending subfields," a reporter wrote about that year's gathering, "the digital humanities seem like the first 'next big thing' in a long time." Even earlier, the National Endowment for the Humanities created its Office of Digital Humanities to help fund projects. And digital humanities continues to go from strength to strength, thanks in part to the Mellon Foundation, which has seeded programs at a number of universities with large grants.

The Adjunct Revolt: How Poor Professors Are Fighting Back

Art and the Internet of Things: A Turning Point in Creative Education
The Guardian
In the art world's internal sense of time, the degree show is in many ways the equivalent of New Year's Eve: a point at which to collectively celebrate the birth of the future, while taking stock of the events of the past year. Reflecting on the 2013–14 academic year, it is clear that one of the most pressing issues is that of value, and the need continually to defend the arts in this respect. It is interesting to note the difference between making art for yourself—which holds value for you as an individual—and pursuing a career as an artist by studying for a degree in fine art or a related field. By doing the latter, you are implicitly deciding that your creativity also holds value for others.

Five Tips for Grant Research
Fractured Atlas
It's easy to get excited about the prospect of funding via grants, which carry a certain amount of prestige and the assurance that your work is (at least somewhat) funded, not to mention the fact that, if a funder is willing to give you a grant, they respect your work. But as the saying goes, only fools rush in.
