Who's Getting Tenure-Track Jobs? It's Time to Find Out
Vitae
As the academic labor market turns grimmer and tenure-track professorships become scarcer, it's hard not to wonder: Who's getting hired to the desperately coveted positions that remain? It's a question with serious implications, both for the academy and for the hordes of job-seeking scholars.

New York Times

Can the Monograph Survive?
Inside Higher Ed
The first four chapters prove the scholar's done the work, and the next two chapters—the ones “people might actually read"—present the argument. Elsewhere and in between are the reworking of the author's dissertation and implicit tenure pitch. That's how Timothy Burke, professor and chair of history at Swarthmore College, described the scholarly monograph during a recent forum on its future sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries.

An Expert Cites Dozens of Paintings as Rembrandt's
Wall Street Journal
Are there suddenly dozens more genuine Rembrandts in the world? There are if art authorities accept the findings of Ernst van de Wetering, the Dutch art historian and longtime head of the Netherlands-based Rembrandt Research Project.

Bonfire of the Humanities
Aeon
It has long been fashionable to say that the globe is shrinking. In the wake of the telegraph, the steamship, and the railway, thinkers from the late-nineteenth century onward often wrote of space and time being annihilated by new technologies. In our current age of jet travel and the internet, we often hear that the world is flat, and that we live in a global village. Time has also been compressed. In the 1980s, this myopic vision found a name: short-termism.

Will My Nonacademic Writing Come Back to Haunt Me?
Vitae
As a graduate student, I have published in nonacademic venues on the topic of parenting a special-needs child. Now I am concerned that this is going to come back to haunt me on the faculty job market. Some of my professors have pressured me to quit the graduate program, assuming I couldn't manage academia and motherhood. I kept at it, and finished my degree, but will search committees secretly think the same thing as those professors?
