Help Desk: Internship Woes
Daily Serving    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I wrote the blog for a gallery for over six months without having my name attached. The blog did very well and was picked up on by a local magazine that asked the gallery owner to contribute a regular guest column for their publication. I proceeded to plan and outline the next six months of art-related subject matter with the pretext that I would be getting paid as my internship was completed. After the internship had ended, I wrote three posts for the gallery's blog before the owner told me it was no longer in his budget. I was never paid for those entries, and my ideas continue to be used thereafter. Where do we draw the line on our unpaid time and efforts while aspiring to get recognition for the work that we do?

Harvard's 3D-Printing Archaeologists Fix Ancient Artifacts
Wired    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Indiana Jones practiced archaeology with a bullwhip and fedora. Joseph Greene and Adam Aja are using another unlikely tool: a 3D printer. Greene and Aja work at Harvard University's Semitic Museum, using 3D printers and 3D scanning software to re-create a ceramic lion that was smashed three thousand years ago when Assyrians attacked the ancient Mesopotamian city of Nuzi, located in modern-day Iraq.

Are Curators a Vanishing Breed?
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Strong support for California's ambitious program to limit greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming was reconfirmed in a recent USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll, showing once more the state's celebrated environmental consciousness. So perhaps it's time at least to ring a warning bell about a puzzling situation in Los Angeles' cultural environment, rather than its natural one. At area art museums, the job of chief curator appears to be edging toward the endangered species list. Three notable chief curators have left their museum jobs in the past year. Successors are nowhere in sight. More

In the Thick of It
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I remember September. I recall staring at the postings on H-Net and bemoaning the absence of jobs. Now it's November, and oh, how I long for September. My friends who went on the market last year complained about applying to sixty or more jobs, but by late August I could count only fifteen or so that I could reasonably convince myself were suitable—not because the others were too far away, or the teaching load was too heavy, but because I couldn't conceive of any way to assert that I was a good candidate. Where, I wondered, would those many additional job ads come from? More

When Nasty Reviews Strike: What's the Role of the Reviewer?
Globe and Mail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The question of the value of nasty reviews of cultural products has been in the news a lot lately, but it's an issue that has been debated for as long as I can remember. I remember publishing in the Globe and Mail in about 1990 an article discouraging the writing of negative reviews of books from tiny local presses. I can't remember exactly what my argument was, and it seems like a silly idea now. More
