Were the First Artists Mostly Women?

Women made most of the oldest-known cave paintings, suggests a new analysis of ancient handprints. Most scholars had assumed these ancient artists were predominantly men, so the finding overturns decades of archaeological dogma.

AIA Statement on the Recent Sale of Artifacts by the St. Louis Society
Archaeological Institute of America
The Archaeological Institute of America has learned with grave concern that the AIA St. Louis Society has sold a collection of Egyptian artifacts entrusted to its care. These objects were intended to benefit the citizens of St. Louis by helping them to understand the record of past human achievement. The decision to sell these objects after a century of custodianship contravenes this expectation.

Publishers Win Reversal of Court Ruling That Favored "E-Reserves" at Georgia State University
Chronicle of Higher Education
How much copyrighted material can professors make available to students in online course reserves before they exceed the boundaries of educational fair use? That's the essential question at the heart of a long-running copyright-infringement lawsuit that has pitted three academic publishers against Georgia State University. Last week, in a setback for the university, a federal appeals court reversed a May 2012 ruling that mostly favored Georgia State.

Nurturing Talent
Metropolis
Design education leaves designers lacking in business skills—it's hard enough to learn to be a designer, but there needs to be a next step for the business side that caters to the entrepreneur. Who wants to spend two years getting an MBA if you've got a hot idea? We need a place where smart, talented designers can get an on-demand education about how to start a business, which includes everything from financial planning and costing to how to stay out of trouble.

"Looking" at Art in the Smartphone Age
Pacific Standard
"Beyoncé and Jay-Z Take Selfie with Mona Lisa!" headlines all over the internet blared. And it's true, the first couple of American pop culture did take a photo of themselves in front of one of the masterpieces of European art history. But in the instantly iconic image, the two musicians aren't even looking at the famous work of art that they knowingly appropriate. In fact, they have their backs turned to it, with the Mona Lisa's face poking out over their shoulders like a photobomb across the centuries.

Soft Fabrics Have Solid Appeal

Once dismissed as utilitarian, homespun, and intellectually flimsy, textiles are gaining international stature in art museums. The artist Richard Tuttle just unveiled a vast installation in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall, called I Don't Know, or the Weave of Textile Language, while new and older works are on view in his retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery in east London. Meanwhile, there are shows on fiber art, weaving, and embroidery at the Drawing Center in New York and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston.

Hanging a Tapestry in the Met Is a Lot More Complicated Than You Think
Slate
The Metropolitan Museum of Art recently opened a new exhibition: Grand Design, a collection featuring nineteen massive tapestries by the Renaissance master Pieter Coecke van Aelst. The tapestries are epic, intricate pieces, spanning up to thirty feet in length and weighing an average of one hundred pounds—which begs the question of how, exactly, the museum hangs them.

The Confidence Gap in Academic Writing
Vitae
As a writing workshop instructor, I've become familiar with the garden-variety problems that graduate students face in writing a dissertation. Often those difficulties boil down to an avoidance of the daily grind of writing itself. Sometimes students lack any concrete feedback on their drafts or receive comments that are too general to be of much help in the revision process. Many students are unfamiliar with the tricks and tools of the writing trade itself—things like reverse outlines, free writing, or "storyboarding."

Managing Your Academic Career
Inside Higher Ed
In my ten years of interviewing and/or observing approximately one hundred faculty members at various types of institutions, I have learned a great deal about how to shape and manage academic work in ways that promote meaningful, balanced, and satisfying careers. To prepare for a presentation at new faculty orientation at Saint Joseph's University, I reviewed the field notes, interview transcripts, and publications from my past studies with one question in mind: What strategies might best help new faculty members manage their academic careers during a time of rising expectations, decreasing resources, and diminishing boundaries between work and life?
