What impact does it have on publishing in art history? Scholars, especially in the humanities, know surpri-singly little about the academic publication system in which they participate’.(1) So suggests a recent article on high-prestige journals in North America, noting that although humanities scholars have been long been fascinated by historical systems of knowledge production, the actual mechanics of publication, including peer review, have rarely been thought to merit much attention.

It is probable that for both the reader and the author of this article, any sense of the precise conditions under which it was reviewed and accepted for publication will be largely a matter of gossip and guesswork. And yet publishing is the economy through which the discipline of art history functions. The history of peer review.

Making a Personal Website: A guide for grad students and other academics

Most of the people I work with are humanities/social science grad students or faculty. One of the most common questions I get asked is how to build a website. I’ve heard it so often, helped so many friends build quick, simple websites by now, and seen enough capable-yet- overwhelmed-veering-on-desperate people overpay for something that’s relatively simple to do yourself that I figured it was time to write up my advice.1The ideas for much of what I’m presenting here originated in a presentation for grad students in the environmental humanities I put together a couple of years ago along with my friend Garrett Nelson, who is now a postdoctoral geographer at Dartmouth.

A preliminary report on the 2017 CAA annual conference, which runs through Saturday, February 18, in New York, found that, of 256 sessions, only 3 (1.17 percent) will be dedicated to the subject of Latinx art, while 14 of the 949 papers (1.47 percent) discuss Latinx art. Taking into account the growth in sessions and papers between the 2016 and 2017 conferences, the preliminary report states that these are 0.13 percent and 0.43 percent increases, respectively.
