Does Copyright Matter?
New York Review of Books    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Do I, as an author, have the right to prevent people copying my books for free? Should I have it? Does it matter? "They have taken away my right to own a slave," wrote Max Stirner, the opening words of the chapter on human rights in his great book, The Ego and its Own (1844). One paradoxical sentence to remind us that what we call rights are no more than what the law concedes to one party or another in any given conflict of interest. There are no rights in nature, only in a society with a legal system and a police force. More

Exchange Mates
Winston-Salem Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This fall many students and professors at Wake Forest University will again stroll or jog on grounds near a former country estate that became a nationally noted museum in 1967. And when they do, they'll likely find a quarter-mile trail that winds its way through the woods behind campus, connecting the university to the Reynolda House Museum of American Art. In 2002, Reynolda House became an affiliate of Wake Forest, sending ripples of concern through the community. Some wondered whether the university would exert too much control over the museum. But in the decade since, Reynolda House has gained financial stability and access to Wake Forest faculty members, who lecture and teach at the museum from time to time. More

Walk Like a Duck
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Despite all of the doom and gloom about the academic job market, much of it warranted, many newly defended PhD candidates will soon take up posts as assistant professors this fall. Many others will join the non-tenure-track ranks in a variety of positions. If there is a near-universal source of anxiety for newly minted PhDs and newly appointed academics, it is the impostor syndrome, the lurking, sinking, throbbing feeling that they will soon be exposed for the intellectual and professional frauds that they sometimes suspect themselves of being.

Attendance More Than Triples at DIA after Millage
Detroit Free Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you build it, they will come. But if you make it free, they may well come in droves. Attendance at the Detroit Institute of Arts more than tripled last week compared with the same five-day period in 2011. Starting last Wednesday, the DIA opened its doors for free to residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties in exchange for voters' approval a day earlier of a property tax in all three counties to support the museum. Nearly 8,000 visitors poured into the museum through Sunday, about 5,000 of whom were admitted free. More

Why Arts Managers Short of Cash Are Looking at Detroit
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When it comes to the fine arts, things are really, really rough all over. Yet another major regional orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony, is now publicly grappling with a debt crisis (it's nearly $20 million in the hole) exacerbated by high labor costs that threaten the ensemble's existence. The situation, says the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, is "increasingly dire." Meanwhile, a growing number of much-admired performing groups, including Palm Beach's Florida Stage, have been forced to shut down permanently, while others, most notably the New York City Opera, have chosen instead to gut their operations to the point of unrecognizability.

Criminalizing Photography
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It seems like photographing in public is becoming a crime. Literally every day, someone is being arrested for doing nothing more than taking a photograph in a public place. It makes no sense to me. Photography is an expression of free speech. Since 9/11, there's been an incredible number of incidents where photographers are being interfered with and arrested for doing nothing other than taking pictures or recording video in public places. It's not just news photographers who should be concerned with this. I think every citizen should be concerned. More

On Leaving Academe
Chronicle of Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Earlier this year, I resigned from my position as an associate professor of computer science at the University of New Mexico; in July, I started as a software engineer at Google. Countless people, from my friends to my (former) dean, have asked, Why? Why give up an excellent—some say "cushy"—tenured faculty position for the grind of corporate life? I haven't made this move lightly, and I think it's an important cautionary note to sound: the factors that have made academe less appealing to me will also affect other professors. More

Liberal Arts vs. Internships
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recent federal regulations have raised questions about the legality of many unpaid internships and have put pressure on employers either to pay interns or to be sure the work is closely tied to academic programs, ideally with credit awarded. For vocationally oriented programs, this is not a big conflict, as many such programs award credit for internships, and view internships as closely tied to the curriculum. But what about liberal-arts colleges? More
