Professors Seek to Reframe Salary Debate
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When a parent asked Vice President Joseph Biden this year why college costs keep rising, he cited faculty pay as one culprit. "Salaries for college professors have escalated significantly," Biden said in January during a town-hall meeting in Pennsylvania. The vice president's rhetoric is part of a broader story about faculty pay and productivity that the American Association of University Professors wants to rewrite. The group is seeking to use the results of its latest annual report on faculty salaries as a myth buster for the politicians, activists, and others who have argued that professors are earning too much while working too little.

Santa Monica College Trustees Postpone Two-Tier Fee Plan
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Santa Monica College in Los Angeles has recently cancelled a two-tier fee program that sparked student protests, opposition from the state's community colleges chancellor, and national debate about the mission of public institutions. The college's board of trustees voted unanimously to postpone implementation this summer of the dual-fee plan and to gather wider input from students, faculty, and staff on how best to increase access to classes—which have suffered drastic reductions in recent years because of state funding cuts.

Professional Service: Getting Involved in Your Discipline
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Professional service is one of the many elements of becoming a professional that many graduate students don't consider to be an important component of graduate school. It often slides under the radar, somewhere well below writing, research, and teaching. While almost all students understand the importance of joining professional organizations, attending conferences, and presenting at those conferences, few take their involvement beyond that step. However, there are many different ways to be involved in your professional organization, and a number of important reasons to do so. More

Barnes Foundation Preview
Artnet    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The public-relations army behind the controversial new Barnes Foundation, which opens next month in a $100 million building in Philadelphia, was in full force during a preview luncheon at Manhattan's Le Bernardin on April 4, 2012. For those unfamiliar with the saga, the cantankerous doctor Albert C. Barnes launched the foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania, in 1922 to showcase his superb collection of eight hundred Postimpressionist and modern artworks, estimated now to be worth some $25 billion. Barnes, ever the antiestablishmentarian, stipulated in his will that the collection never be loaned, rearranged, open to the public, or moved from the building. More

Afterlife Meeting
DanceBeat    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The composer John Cage died suddenly in 1992. The following year, his partner, the choreographer Merce Cunningham, premiered a new dance, Doubletoss. This past March, close to the nineteenth anniversary of the original performance of Doubletoss, Robert Swinston, the former director of choreography for the now-nonexistent Merce Cunningham Dance Company, premiered Four Walls/Doubletoss Interludes at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York. Swinston assembled eight former Cunningham dancers for the project, and the new work is intriguing—both in its riskiness and in the vision it creates. More

US Museums Rebuild but Fears of Relapse Linger
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Leading US museums are finally in recovery mode and their directors are much more optimistic about the financial outlook than a year ago, but few are feeling bullish. Endowments may have increased but have not regained their peak of 2007. Of the ten richest museums surveyed by the Art Newspaper, seven were within sight of their previous levels, but the wealthiest, the Getty Trust, is only a third of the way to the $1.8 billion it lost during the downturn. The road to financial health will be long for all but a fortunate few, and many fear that the economic recovery may prove short lived. More

Call Yourself a Critic?
Frieze    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What does the way in which critics define themselves today tell us about how they conceive of their relationship to art and to writing? A recent panel discussion at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, titled "The Trouble with Art Criticism," included writers, editors, and curators, but only one of the five participants was identified as a critic. Of course, disavowing the term gets around the thorny issue of whether or not it's the critic's business to be dealing in judgments, but with what should it be replaced? More
