The Humanities, Unraveled
Chronicle of Higher Education
Let me start with the bad news. It is not even news anymore; it is simply bad. Graduate education in the humanities is in crisis.Every aspect, from the most specific details of the curriculum to the broadest questions about its purpose, is in crisis. It is a seamless garment of crisis: if you pull on any one thread, the entire thing unravels.

Art Collection Assessed as Detroit Nears Bankruptcy
Art Newspaper
As the city of Detroit's bankruptcy case survived its first legal challenges in federal court, the Detroit Institute of Arts remains at the center of a national debate over what city-owned property can and should be liquidated to help cover its estimated $18 billion debt. At some point in the past two months, Christie's auction house sent two employees to Detroit to assess the collection. The employees did not meet with museum leadership during their visit.

Embargoes for Dissertations?
Inside Higher Ed
The American Historical Association has released a policy calling on history departments and university libraries to allow students to place embargoes on the online versions of PhD dissertations in the field for up to six years. The association says that such a policy is needed to enable new PhDs to successfully publish books based on their dissertations. But some historians are upset about the proposal, which they say isn't needed and runs counter to the scholarly mission of sharing research findings.

Publishing Your Dissertation Online: What's a New PhD to Do?
Chronicle of Higher Education
The American Historical Association recently released a controversial statement that strongly advised graduate programs and libraries to adopt a policy allowing the embargoing of the publication of completed dissertations online for up to six years. Supporters argue that it protects junior authors, given that in the current academic climate a completed and published single-authored monograph continues to be the standard for tenure and promotion. Opponents counter with several arguments, such as making the dissertation research public allows the junior scholar to gain credit for his or her work.

Genres, Like Sand, Tricky to Pin Down
New York Times
It is pitch dark as you are swallowed up in a crowd of unknowable size, voices chanting and burbling around you, bodies jostling close by. There is no way to know how big the room is, where you are going, or whether you are about to collide with a wall or a human. It is Tino Sehgal's This Variation, and as your eyes adjust, performers become slowly visible, moving amid the crowd, dancing and singing or pausing to talk about money and jobs.

Union Raises for Adjuncts
Inside Higher Ed
When adjuncts push to unionize, they typically want better pay, better benefits (or any benefits if they don't have them), and job security. With unionization drives spreading, a key question is: does collective bargaining yield meaningful gains? The results of numerous initial contracts suggest the answer is "Yes." Negotiations on first contracts can take six months or more, but gains in those contracts frequently include significant pay increases and other, nonfinancial benefits.
