Call to Action by the Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences
CAA News
The commissioners who created a new report, The Heart of the Matter, and the congressmen responsible for commissioning it addressed their personal and professional views on the values of the humanities to an audience of two hundred academic leaders who gathered in the US Capitol building's atrium. The three major goals of the report are to increase the literacy and knowledge of history for all Americans to create better citizens, to invest in research and teaching, and to expand international cultural knowledge and awareness through the study of languages and international study.

Self-Sabotage in the Academic Career
Chronicle of Higher Education
Pogo recognized long ago that we often are our own worst enemies. Sure, he was a cartoon character, but he had a point—especially in higher education, where self-sabotage seems to be a standard characteristic of academic careers.

Creative Aging: The Emergence of Artistic Talents
The Atlantic
I always wished I had true musical or artistic talent. There being none, I became a physician. Five years ago, I starting taking guitar lessons and hoped that I would be amazed by some "hidden" talent that would reveal itself to me and the rest of the world.

Humanities Committee Sounds an Alarm
New York Times
A new national corps of "master teachers" trained in the humanities and social sciences and increased support for research in "endangered" liberal-arts subjects are among the recommendations of a major report delivered last week on Capitol Hill. The report comes amid concern about low humanities enrollments and worries that the Obama administration's emphasis on science education risks diminishing a huge source of the nation's intellectual strength.

The Humanities "Crisis"—Are Museums and Higher Education Doing All They Can?
e-Literate
Our public museums and libraries and our colleges and universities occupy a privileged cultural space and have earned respect born of their missions to foster and disseminate knowledge. By historical standards, public museums and libraries have been open institutions, and more people than ever are taking advantage of higher education. But what is possible in terms of scale and what constitutes "open" have moved fast and far recently. To date, most museums, colleges, and universities have not yet embraced the radical expansion to their missions that is now possible.

Do Unpaid Internships Lead to Jobs? Not for College Students
The Atlantic
The common defense of the unpaid internship is that, even if the role doesn't exactly pay, it will pay off eventually in the form of a job. Turns out, the data suggests that defense is wrong, at least when it comes to college students. For three years, the National Association of Colleges and Employers has asked graduating seniors if they've received a job offer and if they've ever had either a paid or unpaid internship. And for three years, it's reached the same conclusion: unpaid internships don't seem to give college kids much of a leg up when it comes time to look for employment.

What Job-Placement Data Would Be Useful?
Chronicle of Higher Education
What data on the job placement of PhDs would be most useful to prospective graduate students and job candidates? "Any data at all," came the reply from one respondent to an informal survey on graduate-school placement. The sense of frustration with the lack of reliable information was clear in the responses. The survey asked, "What data would be the most useful to you on the job-placement rates of individual PhD programs?" One respondent replied, "honest data; no lies." Another wrote: "Any data would have been nice. I was given the impression that a PhD would lead to a job, but now I know that isn't the case at all."

Help Desk: Getting Schooled
Daily Serving
I'm an artist in my mid-twenties who has absolutely no formal education. So far I've managed to be fairly happy with small but very meaningful visibility, knowing that art making is about process and that it takes time to find one's self. But I'm starting to hit a wall regarding the growth of my practice and am worried that my lack of "training" might be the problem, so I'm considering going to art school. How important do you think education is in order for someone to be or to become a professional artist?

Art Museums Better Hurry Up and Get Ready for the Future of 3D Printing
The Atlantic
In his living room in San Diego right now, Cosmo Wenman has two life-sized reproductions of the British Museum's Head of a Horse of Selene, a magnificently lifelike sculpture with flared nostrils that dates to about 432 BC. The original in Britain is made of marble, about three feet end to end. Wenman's copies, created with an older digital camera and a MakerBot 3D printer, are clearly reproductions as soon as you lift them up. Created in plastic and coated in a bronze patina, they weigh about eight pounds each.
