ArtsATL    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Emory University has announced a plan to restructure its College of Arts and Sciences. As it embarks on a multiyear program to shore up core strengths and focus on new growth areas, it will eliminate four departments—most notably, for ArtsATL readers, the department of visual arts and the program in journalism. Among other changes, the Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts will become an institute without a permanent faculty, and graduate admissions to it will be suspended. More

From Combat to Campus
Academe    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Soldiers are returning from war to college. For several years I did not even notice them. That seems to be the way they like it. The 336 veterans who are now students on the Bridgewater State University campus in Massachusetts are almost invisible. By my calculation, the number of veterans at BSU has increased by 65 percent since 2009–10. The veterans are in my art classes, however. I wanted to know what they had to say. More

California Takes a Big Step Forward: Free, Digital, Open-Source Textbooks
Atlantic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This week, California took a big step forward in the march toward online education. Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a proposal to create a website that will allow students to download digital versions of popular textbooks for free. The new legislation encompasses two bills: one, a proposal for the state to fund fifty open-source digital textbooks, targeted to lower-division courses, which will be produced by California's universities. (Students will be able to download these books for free or pay $20 for hard copies.) The other bill is a proposal to establish a California Digital Open Source Library to host those books. More

Humanities in the Digital Age
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Since the 2008 Great Recession, American higher education has experienced a new round of uncertainties and reductions—especially, but not only, in public institutions. British academics refer to the current season of top-down austerity as "the cuts," but in the US, we might speak of lingchi, "death by a thousand cuts." With faculty lines slashed, programs eliminated, course seats lowered, and graduate student aid reduced, the decentralized US higher education system has struggled to maintain quality across the disciplines. Humanities programs, in particular, have appeared threatened. More

Do Art Gallery Practices Constitute Restraint of Trade?
Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Walking into a car dealership, one assumes that the automobiles in the showroom, as well as those in the lot, are for sale and that the only questions for the buyer and seller are options, price, and financing. The price and financing are also part of the discussion when an art collector looks to buy a work of art from a dealer, and even options (framed or unframed, crating and shipping, insurance) may come into play. But there the similarities end. More

Younger, Happier Mona Lisa Painted Ten Years Earlier, Experts Believe
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Leonardo da Vinci painted a younger and happier Mona Lisa some ten years before creating the famous work, art experts are claiming. Slightly larger in size than the Louvre portrait,‭ ‬the "new" painting features‭ ‬a darker tonality and ‬a different, unfinished background framed by two columns; it also ‬shows a younger lady with a less enigmatic smile. Known as the Isleworth Mona Lisa,‭ ‬the artwork has been unveiled in Geneva by the Mona Lisa Foundation,‭ ‬a Zurich‭-based consortium that has‭ ‬kept the painting in a Swiss bank vault for‭ ‬forty‭ ‬years.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ More

Warhol's Archives Undergo a Reorganization
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The synchronicity of Andy Warhol's record saleroom prices with the rise of art as a celebrity culture often overshadows the reality of a complex, introverted man with a fine analytical, sociological mind. This side of Warhol's character is easier to find in the archives of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh—but there is an irony in the fact that this important research facility is currently closed (except for very limited individual access).

Why Some Academics Publish More
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Motivation and the ability to network have a far greater impact on research productivity than age, gender, job satisfaction, managerial support, or teaching load. That is the central conclusion of work by researchers from University College Dublin, which looked at responses of almost 11,000 full-time academics from twelve European countries assembled for the Changing Academic Profession survey and more recent data obtained by the Academic Profession in Europe: Responses to Societal Challenges project. After defining "research productivity" as "the number of publications in peer-reviewed journals and book chapters completed" over a three-year period, the team set out to analyze the demographic, academic, and institutional variables that best predict the high and low performers.
