A Win for Academic Freedom: Steven Salaita Awarded Back-to-Back Victories against University That Fired Him
Salon
The first part of June has awarded back-to-back victories to Steven Salaita, a professor who last year was dismissed from his post at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, for posting tweets considered by some to be beyond the pale of proper academic discourse. What makes this case especially interesting—and what the recent court decision and a critical vote by the largest confederation of US professors in the country shows—is the undue and improper interference of wealthy donors on the internal affairs of public educational institutions.

Should I Ask Someone to Write about My Show?
Burnaway
I've had two solo shows in the last couple of years that received absolutely no press coverage. I'm trying to get a better position at the college at which I currently teach and need all the help I can get. Reviews look good on a résumé. Should I ask some of the local writers to write about my next show? What if they are good friends?

Help Desk: Serious Damage
Daily Serving
I have my work up in a solo exhibition at a well-known arts center in a large city. Last weekend during open gallery hours, I walked in to find five wall pieces and a major floor sculpture missing. The attendants had no idea what had happened or where the work was. Finally, I found someone who let me in to the offices where the work was being stored. Two pieces were broken and the rest were undamaged. How should I handle this situation?

Blurring the Museum-Gallery Divide
New York Times
Ever since Mark Rosenthal left his job as head of twentieth-century art at the National Gallery in Washington to become an independent curator, museums around the country have sought his talents. Now art galleries are trying to hire him, too—but not just for his scholarship. "There was a big expectation," Rosenthal said, "that I could deliver works for sale."

You Want to Write for a Popular Audience? Really?
Chronicle of Higher Education
At a recent job interview, I explained to the committee that I was trying to write a book for a popular audience. One of them smirked, but at least had the grace to try to hide it behind her hand. The self-described maverick of the team simply laughed out loud. The head of the committee stared at me in genuine amazement. "Why bother?" he asked. After all, there was no hope of reaching the general public. Or as he put it, "the masses will always just be the masses."

World's Most Inaccessible Art Found in the Heart of the Colombian Jungle
The Guardian
A British wildlife filmmaker has returned from one of the most inaccessible parts of the world with extraordinary footage of ancient rock art that has never been filmed or photographed before. In an area of Colombia so vast and remote that contact has still not been made with some tribes thought to live there, Mike Slee used a helicopter to film hundreds of paintings depicting hunters and animals believed to have been created thousands of years ago.

How to Use Student Evaluations Wisely

I'm well aware that the value of student evaluations is contested, but like my father, I've also found that they can be useful tools. At my own institution, I inherited a nuanced set of faculty-designed guidelines on the use of student evaluations. Among the best ideas I found in them.
