How to Avoid Being Published
Inside Higher Ed
I enjoyed Maureen Pirog's recent piece "How to Get Published," which is filled with common sense and good advice. Back in 2009, I too posted some publishing tips. I wish I could report that things have gotten better since then, but alas, from what I've observed with several journals, magazines, and newspapers with which I'm associated, writing in the humanities remains dire. Want to avoid being published? Here's how.

Is Deskilling Killing Your Arts Education?
Huffington Post
In 1974, when I was a freshman art student at a small liberal-arts college in Wisconsin, I wanted to learn to draw the human figure. One untenured professor took me under his wing and encouraged that process, but the department chair, an alcoholic abstract painter, stumbled into the studio late one evening while I was studying a plaster head that showed the muscles of the face. He slowly looked at me, then at the head. "This is not art!" he screamed, lifting the cast high and smashing it on the cement at his feet.

Why Advertise Research Jobs If You've Already Picked Your Winner?
The Guardian
Coming to the end of yet another fixed-term research contract, it was time to start applying for my next one. I was lucky this time: my senior colleagues had just won a large grant, and one of the research assistant jobs was perfect for me. I applied and was offered the position. Great! But it's not really that great, because the principal investigator had all but offered me the job in advance. The other fifty-plus applicants didn't really stand a chance.

The Peer-Review Jerk Survival Guide
Vitae
My academic friends, unless you're part of a peer-review fraud syndicate, you will almost certainly have to deal with a jerky reader's report. It might make you cry. It might make you get into a car accident. It might launch into a perplexing and irrelevant tirade about how using the digitized version of a Library of Congress source (rather than, presumably, traveling to the District of Columbia with all of your spare money) is a signifier of "scholarly sloth." It may make you want to punch through a wall.

How to be Supportive of an Artist

My sister is an artist. She's really talented and I try to help and support her as much as possible by creating a peaceful and quiet environment for her to work in and by letting her know about gallery and museum exhibits or networking opportunities. It seem like whatever I do annoys her. What am I doing wrong?
