Survey Results on Contingent Faculty in Higher Education
CAA News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The results of a 2010 survey of contingent faculty members and instructors in American higher education, published today by the Coalition on the Academic Workforce, have confirmed much of what has been reported anecdotally: part-time faculty members demonstrate a dedicated level of commitment to teaching and to the institutions that employ them, but this commitment is not reciprocated by those institutions through compensation or other professional support.

Plan Offers Better Pay, Job Stability, and a Career Path for Contingent Faculty
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A plan that would provide job stability, a clear path of advancement, and better pay for faculty who work off the tenure track—roughly 70 percent of the professoriate nationwide—was the talk of a session at the annual meeting of the American Association of University Professors. The proposal, modeled partly on standards in Middle Tennessee State University's English Department, calls for contingent faculty to progress through four phases of employment. Their career progression would not culminate in tenure. But, the plan says, the path would allow the instructors to gain what it calls "reviewable permanence" in their jobs, as well as a means to professional development. More

French Publisher Group Strikes Deal with Google over Ebooks
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Even as a dispute over Google's digital book project deepens in the United States, the company said that it had reached an agreement in France that could bring back to life thousands of out-of-print works. The French Publishers Association and the Société des Gens de Lettres, an authors' group, dropped lawsuits in which they contended that Google's book scanning in France violated copyright. Google agreed to set up a "framework" agreement under which publishers would be able to offer digital versions of their works for Google to sell. More

The Artist's Survival Guide to Art Fairs
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The American painter Chuck Close once expressed a memorable view of art fairs. "I think that, for an artist to go to an art fair, it's like taking a cow on a guided tour of a slaughterhouse," he told New York magazine in 2007. "You know that sort of thing goes on, but you don't want to see it." Although Close is not alone in his disdain, an American dealer who asked not to be named perhaps sums up the majority view. "Most of the artists I work with aren't so interested in admitting that they want to show at fairs," he says. "But, of course, in the end, everyone appreciates what can come with it, in the form of press, further exhibition opportunities, and cash." More

So You Think You Want to Organize a Conference?
GradHacker    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Most of us have been there. Standing in line at the annual conference of [insert national association of scholars of some discipline or region here] and protesting the length of the time to register. Wondering why it takes the conference committee so long to accept or reject our abstract. Locating typos in the conference program. Complaining about the seemingly mismatched papers on a panel. But have you ever sat on the other side of that registration table? Considered volunteering for or organizing a conference yourself? More

Editors with Ethics
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Many of the public debates over ethics in scholarly journals focus on such questions as conflict of interest by biomedical researchers. And various federal regulations (and journal codes of conduct) attempt to prevent conflicts. Now some journal editors—primarily in the social sciences but extending to other fields—are trying to use a new code of conduct to address ethical issues that arise in fields beyond the biological sciences (though there, too) but that also have the potential to tarnish the image of the research enterprise.

Were Neanderthals Europe's First Cave Artists?
Discovery    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A series of cave paintings in Spain are thousands of years older than scientists realized, raising speculation—but no proof—that Neanderthals could have been the earliest wall artists in Europe. The oldest image, a large red disk on the wall of El Castillo cave in northern Spain, is more than 40,800 years old, according to an advanced method that uses natural deposits on the surfaces of the paintings to date their creation. The new findings make the paintings the oldest reliably dated wall paintings ever. More

Fair Use, Art, Swiss Cheese, and Me
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
None of the thoughts that occurred to me on that tranquil afternoon when a slice of Swiss cheese was deposited on my face was so exotic as to include the notion that, fifteen years later, I would listen to judges debate whether I should be allowed to remove the cheese and set it on fire. And yet, such exotic questions are now before the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, where a three-judge panel will rule on a case with serious implications for the visual arts.

A "Stop the Clock" Penalty
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As colleges and universities have moved to make themselves more "family friendly" to parents, "stop the clock" policies have proliferated. As a benefit, a new parent—female or male, although generally more women use the benefit—can have an extra year before the tenure review. The idea is that the additional time demands of becoming a new parent are bound to make it more difficult for a scholar to finish the next book, land the next grant, or do whatever is expected before promotion.
