Why Experts Are the Last People You Want to Include in Creative Brainstorming
Fast Company
In a team setting, certain kinds of experts often wield power over the rest of the group, setting an example for junior teammates to follow. Ironically, these same experts often lose their ability to think up and weigh the wildly creative solutions that can lead to team breakthroughs. Smart beginners resent them for that.

The Long, Twisted History of Glitch Art
Kernel
Nick Briz, a Chicago-based artist, educator, and organizer, has defined "glitch" as "an unexpected moment in a system that calls attention to that system, and perhaps even leads us to notice aspects of that system that might otherwise go unnoticed. Glitch art, then, is anytime an artist intentionally leverages that moment, by either recontextualizing or provoking glitches." The glitch draws back the curtain on our sleekest devices and virtual constructs to reveal raw pixels and code, a surreal landscape of unformed possibilities.

Am I an Activist?
Vitae
A few months ago, I was on a conference panel about activism at the junior faculty level. Apparently when you ask people about activism in my field of religious studies, my name pops up, which baffles me. Am I an activist? I wouldn't give myself that label.

Just How Important Is Color?
Pacific Standard
When was the last time you thought about color? Save for the occasional breathtaking sunset, or "The Dress" phenomenon last month, how often do you consciously stop and think about the specific shades of the world around you? Unless you're a fashion designer, painter, or an interior decorator, it's probably something you take for granted. A recent video by Valspar Paint highlights just how awe-inspiring color really is.

Rights to Scholarly Work
Inside Higher Ed
For many years, Ohio State University had an understanding with its faculty: the institution might claim intellectual-property rights to innovations, inventions, and patentable research, but scholarly works belonged to professors alone. Now a new draft intellectual-property policy is threatening that agreement in the eyes of some faculty members. The ongoing debate has implications for defining scholarly work in the digital age and for just how much of an academic's work—digital or not—his or her institution can claim to own.

Precious Art Analyzed without Damage Using New Laser Technique
Phys.org
Precious works of art in need of preservation or authentication could in future be studied using a new laser technique, developed by a collaboration of British and Italian scientists, that can analyze layers of paint without causing any damage to the object itself. This new technique will be of real benefit to curators of cultural heritage who need to preserve and authenticate precious works of art without harming them.

O Adjunct! My Adjunct!
New Yorker
I spent half of my undergraduate career figuring out what I didn't want to do. I started off in the journalism program, switched to literature, was undecided for a few panicked, free-floating months, and studied photography for a time. But the spring of my sophomore year, I enrolled in a fiction-writing workshop with an instructor named Harvey Grossinger. What I didn't know at the time—and what I wouldn't figure out for the better part of the next decade—was that Harvey was an adjunct. He didn't tell us, and I didn't know to ask. As an undergraduate, I never heard the term.

Lip-Syncing to the Academic Conversation
Vitae
From the moment they begin doing research, scholars are told to connect their work to "the conversation." They should stay on top of scholarship in their field, responding to the critiques of their contemporaries as well as the dogma of their disciplines. But what happens when that conversation takes place behind a pay wall through which you cannot afford to pass? What happens when your work ignites a dialogue that you can no longer follow?
