Can Art Forgers Be Artists Too?
Oxford University Press Blog
Art forgeries are often decried for crime, but could they be considered art? Many young artists learn to copy the old masters before refining their own work, and contemporary artists often play with ideas of authorship. So can an art forger be considered a legitimate artist?

Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology
Inside Higher Ed
Online education arguably came of age in the last year, with the explosion of massive open online courses driving the public's (and politicians') interest in digitally delivered courses and contributing to the perception that they represent not only higher education's future, but its present. Faculty members, by and large, still aren't buying—and they are particularly skeptical about the value of MOOCs, Inside Higher Ed's new Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology suggests.

Insider Tips from the Art World's Social-Media Pros
Blouin Artinfo
Just a few years ago most major museums' social-media strategy consisted of a sporadically updated Facebook page and little else. Today, social media is a key aspect of art organizations' outreach. Many institutions maintain profiles on multiple platforms, from Tumblr and Twitter to Instagram and YouTube, updating each one multiple times throughout the day. But with this expansion in the volume of content and the number of channels through which it's posted has also come a better understanding of the role social media can play in helping museums and art organizations accomplish their goals.

A Conversation with an Artist/Nonprofit Worker about Her Money
The Billfold
I'm 29. I work in the communications department at a nonprofit in Manhattan and live in Brooklyn. Currently my salary is $39,750. Benefits include health insurance, life insurance (which is free via the health insurance), optional dental and vision, and 401(k). Public transit, parking, and childcare can be put on a prepaid card pre-tax. My office doesn't participate in any federally available tax breaks for reimbursing bike expenses, which irks me since I mostly bike there. There's also an FSA card for healthcare costs not covered by insurance, like copays and glasses.

Discovering Open-Access Art History
Serials Librarian
This article evaluates the indexing of open-access art journals in four frequently used art indexes: Art Full Text, ARTBibliographies Modern, Art and Architecture Complete, and Bibliography of the History of Art/International Bibliography of Art. The authors also compare the indexing of open-access journals in Google Scholar to that in the traditional indexes mentioned above and demonstrate that the content coverage from commercial indexes currently lags behind that of Google Scholar. This article argues that increased indexing of open-access art journals in the traditional, subject-specific indexes will be integral to their acceptance within the discipline of art history.

Academy Fight Song
The Baffler
This essay starts with utopia—the utopia known as the American university. It is the finest educational institution in the world, everyone tells us. Indeed, to judge by the praise that is heaped upon it, the American university may be our best institution, period. With its peaceful quadrangles and prosperity-bringing innovation, the university is more spiritually satisfying than the church, more nurturing than the family, more productive than any industry.
