Why Academics Stink at Writing
Chronicle of Higher Education
Together with wearing earth tones, driving Priuses, and having a foreign policy, the most conspicuous trait of the American professoriate may be the prose style called academese. An editorial cartoon by Tom Toles shows a bearded academic at his desk offering the following explanation of why SAT verbal scores are at an all-time low: "Incomplete implementation of strategized programmatics designated to maximize acquisition of awareness and utilization of communications skills pursuant to standardized review and assessment of languaginal development."

Always Talk to Strangers
Inside Higher Ed
I attended a conference recently and stayed at a hotel that required me to take a shuttle to get to my events. On my first shuttle ride back to the hotel, I chatted with another hotel guest who was attending a different conference and also not staying at his conference hotel. We chatted about a variety of things before we got to that pivotal point when I was very glad I chose this particular hotel.

End the Conference Interview
Vitae
Why is it so hard to kill off the tradition of conference interviews? For decades, search committees in many fields have been holding first-round interviews at the annual meetings of their disciplinary organizations. That means the poorest and most vulnerable members of our profession—graduate students, adjuncts, and fixed-term appointees—have to spend a minimum of $1,000 just to get a shot at the next round. No one would call that a just system, and yet, it lives on.

Fight over DIA Value Resumes in Court
Detroit Free Press
When Detroit's bankruptcy trial restarts, the battle over the value of the Detroit Institute of Arts will return to center stage. The city's largest holdout creditor, the bond insurer Financial Guaranty Insurance Company, is betting its case against the city's so-called grand bargain on the premise that the city-owned DIA is worth billions more than the Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr is willing to admit.

Millennials and Museums: Oil and Water?
Tronvig Group
It's not enough to rely on the "intrinsic awesomeness" of your collections. If I don't know about them, they don't exist. In fact, even if I do know about them, that's probably not enough to get me to come. Where do my priorities lie? Well, I'm trying to save money, I like to socialize and blow off steam with my friends, we like concerts and cocktails, to see art and go dancing. So, what can you offer me?

The Museum Sacrifice Measure
Center for the Future of Museums
How much are you willing to give up to work in a museum? How much did you give up to work in a museum? I'm not talking about quality of life issues such as relocating to a new city, having to explain over and over again, at parties, what a "registrar" is, or spending the day in a windowless cubicle tucked in next to collections storage. I'm talking about cold hard cash.

On the False Democracy of Contemporary Art
e-flux Journal
Art claims that it expands into the sphere of social transformation and genuine democracy. Yet paradoxically, art's ambition for direct social engagement and its self-abandonment loop back to the very territory of contemporary art, its archive machine, and its self-referential rhetoric of historicizing. Hence the question is: Are we really witnessing the anticapitalist transformation that excuses art's self-sublation and its dissolution in newly transformed life?
