Getty Launches Full-Text Website for Art-History Research
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Ann Jensen Adams, a professor of seventeenth-century Dutch painting at the University of California, Santa Barbara, recently tried a new research website from the Getty, she typed the name of a major artist and author in the search field: Karel van Mander. Adams was surprised to find online a full-text version of his 1604 masterpiece, Het Schilder-Boeck (Book of Painters), which attempted to introduce Dutch and German painters like Vasari's classic Lives of the Artists did for so many Italians. "Up came the work on the first hit," she said. "When I looked at who scanned the text, I realized it had been [online] for a while. But without this portal as a consolidator of information, I never would have found it." More

Training for Exploitation? Toward an Alternative Curriculum
Dis    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Since 2010 Dis has focused on issues of free and precarious labor within the education, arts, and design sectors. Through this work, it became clear that we need to engage the fact that colleges and universities play a pivotal role in setting up and normalizing regimes of free and precarious labor and life. In response, Dis began working toward an alternative curriculum for educators and/or students. The magazine now invites users to explore the resource and to share their thoughts and ideas, and to send additional material, to help expand the resource and share ways of intervening in existing neoliberal educational structures.

Is It Art? Increasingly, Nowadays, That's a Judicial Decision
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When did judges become the ultimate arbiters of art? Hardly a month goes by without a court being asked to settle a dispute over the nature of artistic meaning, expression, or authenticity. These are the big-think questions that confound philosophers, art critics, and artists themselves. But judges are regularly obliged to take on these questions—and their answers have huge consequences for what can and cannot be attempted by artists. More

Unhappy Associate Professors
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If one had to guess at a sector of the tenure-track and tenured professoriate likely to have the lowest job satisfaction, assistant professors might seem logical. They face uncertainty on whether they will earn tenure, the pressure to excel in teaching and research, the need to master departmental politics—and they must do all of that with less power and less institutional knowledge than those at the associate and full professor ranks. But the preliminary results of a national survey has found that in most measures, associate professors have lower job satisfaction levels than both assistant and full professors do. More

Museum Apps: How User Interface Can Create a Powerful Experience
Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Museums are increasingly introducing new mobile apps. These apps typically focus on entire collections and enable visitors to browse and obtain information on featured works. While such functionality is valuable for both visitors and nonvisitors alike, apps can potentially exceed mere description and transform the overall museum experience. The key factors that make a good museum app have not yet been definitively identified, but one can learn from some great examples in practice. More

It's Going to Be Huge
New York    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Of all the biennials, triennials, quadrennials, internationals, and massive group shows, Documenta, established in 1955 and held every five years in Kassel, Germany, is seen as the most serious. A statement show. It can also be seen as something else. From the sweeping ambitions of its curators to its numerous large indoor and outdoor projects to the many venues across which it takes place, everything about Documenta is huge. Which makes the event, the 2012 edition of which starts on June 9, an occasion to address a troubling development in the art world: bigness. More

Going the Distance
Campus Technology    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Whoever said "Distance education begins in the tenth row" was taking a jab at the comatose kids at the back of the classroom, but the comment also taps into the old image of distance learners as disengaged. Today, distance-learning programs are booming, in part due to demographic realities but also because recent advances in online technologies have markedly improved the experience. What once was the province of isolated students in far-off outposts has morphed into learning systems that are increasingly seen not only as a rival to face-to-face instruction but also as a valuable complement.

Changing the Economics of Education
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Is there anything to be done about the rising price of higher education? That was the question posed to John Hennessy, president of Stanford University, and Salman Khan, founder of Khan Academy, a nonprofit online-learning organization. They sat down with the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg to discuss how technology might be part of the solution. More
