Trigger Warning Diffused
Inside Higher Ed
Students at Crafton Hills College who sign up for a course on the graphic novel next year will encounter works such as Fun Home and Persepolis without being first warned on the syllabus that they might be offended. That's the way it has been at the college, but officials at the California community college said in June that a trigger warning would be added to the syllabus after one student and her parents complained about those two novels as well as two others.

Speaking for the "Quitters" and "Failures"
Chronicle of Higher Education
In the eyes of many academics, as Leonard Cassuto recently pointed out, I am considered a failure because I did not earn a doctorate. Meanwhile, American universities are awarding more doctorates than ever. And yet I have something most of those newly minted PhDs will never have: a full-time, tenured teaching job.

The Booming World of Architecture That Only Exists in Pixels
Gizmodo

Art Critics Need to Get Serious If They Want to Thrive Online
Art Newspaper
Amazon announced last month that it would change its payment structure for independent writers who publish directly on the online retailer's different Kindle platforms, giving out royalties according to the number of pages read by Kindle users, rather than per book downloaded.

Collector Fights for African Art
New York Times

"Works that used to be clearly in African museums must absolutely return to Africa," Dokolo said. "There are works that disappeared from Africa and are now circulating on the world market based on obvious lies about how they got there."
