Richard Prince Loses Fair-Use Argument
A Photo Editor    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In December 2008, the photographer Patrick Cariou filed suit against Richard Prince, Gagosian Gallery, Lawrence Gagosian, and Rizzoli International Publications in federal district court after Prince appropriated twenty-eight images from Cariou's Yes Rasta book for his Canal Zone exhibition and catalogue.

(Liberal) Academic Self-Selection
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Few aspects of faculty demographics generate more attention than their politics. Why is it, many want to know, that professors are far more likely than the general public to be liberal? Many theories have been put forward, including the view (much discussed in conservative circles) that academe is hostile to conservatives and tries to either weed them out or convert them. Two new studies provide more evidence that bias is not the cause—and the studies provide some additional evidence to back the theory (put forward last year by one of the authors of the new work) that "self-selection" is the primary reason so many academics are liberal.

Now the center of this spectrum has come into focus. There are several instances of free online scholarly publications which maintain an editorial review board of credentialed scholars and practice peer review. More
