AAUP Proposes Giving Contingent Faculty a Much Bigger Role in College Governance
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The American Association of University Professors is poised to urge colleges to give much more say in their governance to contingent faculty members, including many part-time adjuncts, librarians, and graduate students who are paid to teach or conduct research. In a draft report released last week, the association argues that colleges are ill-served by policies that exclude most instructors who are off the tenure track from governance activities, and offers a list of recommendations for giving contingent faculty members much more say in the affairs of the institutions that employ them.

Jackson Pollock's Mural Heads to Getty for Preservation Work
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An important Jackson Pollock painting owned by the University of Iowa that Republican state legislators have lobbied to sell is now leaving the state—temporarily. Next month the massive oil painting, called Mural (1943), is traveling to the Getty Center, where it will be the subject of an extensive conservation effort expected to last eighteen months. More

Rebuilding Mr. Jefferson's University
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When the University of Virginia’s board of visitors voted unanimously to reinstate President Teresa Sullivan last week, the scene on the university's grounds was a significant departure from a similar meeting eight days earlier. Back then, the faculty called for the resignation of two prominent board members, and many on the campus called for the entire board to resign. Last Tuesday, crowds applauded when the name of Helen E. Dragas, the rector, or chair, of the board, was called (though, online, there are still calls for Dragas's resignation). More

Controversial Blueprint: Faculty Unhappy with Proposed Changes to Columbia College Chicago
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Columbia College Chicago is known for strong arts programs. But in the last year, controversies surrounding a plan to merge some programs and cut funding for others have roiled the college, especially because many of the targets are arts programs. Also controversial is a call in the plan to tighten admissions standards. Last week, the college's board approved the program, called Focus 2016: Blueprint for Action, in a closed-door meeting. For many, the dispute has also been about a sense that the administration isn't listening to student or faculty leaders. More

Museum of Endangered Sounds Enshrines Audio from Bygone Era
Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The crackle of a dial-up modem. The metallic clack of a 3.5-inch floppy slotting into a Macintosh disk drive. The squeal of the newborn Tamagotchi. They are vintage sounds that no oldies station is ever going to touch. During the 1980s and 1990s the world bleeped and buzzed with the noise of consumer electronics—stuff like digital-watch alarms and dot-matrix printers—all so banal that you barely registered their existence. Now these random bleeps and bloops have found a long-term home at the Museum of Endangered Sounds, a website dedicated to archiving and preserving the noises emitted by yesterday's gadgetry. More

Famous Artists' Early Exhibition Reviews
Atlantic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Pablo Picasso visited Paris for the first time in 1900. The city had such a profound effect on him that he returned the following year with one hundred paintings in hand, hoping to land a show. The nineteen-year-old painter was introduced to Ambroise Vollard, who immediately secured a spot for him at a gallery on the prestigious Rue Laffitte. Picasso was unknown at the time, but the seventy-five paintings that ranged from moody portraits to representational works featuring landscapes, prostitutes, and society ladies proved he was extremely talented and driven. The few critics that did attend the show gave him favorable reviews. More

Russian Museum Hires "Guard Cats" to Protect the Artwork
Business Insider    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A museum in Saint Petersburg hires guard cats to keep rodents away. The State Hermitage Museum has used cats to protect artwork since it was founded in 1764, the Voice of Russia reports. The cats aren't seen by guests because they dwell in attics and basements, the source of most rodents. More

The Real Loser in Deitch v. Schimmel Is Us
Modern Art Notes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I understand why MOCA's firing of Paul Schimmel may be reduced to a five-word headline: "Jeffrey Deitch fires Paul Schimmel." It's mano-a-mano, the sexy white-hat-versus-black-hat stuff that generates web traffic and retweets. It's also easy to understand how the Deitch v. Schimmel meme perpetuated: with the news out, no one from the museum—not the board, not the director, and not even a spokesperson—would discuss or explain MOCA's decision to fire America's most admired and most respected curator of contemporary art. Amateur hour at MOCA, again. More
