‘The director of the British Museum, Hartwig Fischer, has revealed plans for what could be the most radical redisplay of the permanent collection since the mid-19th century. Artefacts from ancient Greece and Rome, currently spread over two floors, will be reunited and many more objects from Oceania and South America will be on show. Altogether this could involve the redisplay of half of the museum’s nearly 100 rooms. The presentation will be less Eurocentric and the displays will be slightly less dense, to make things easier for visitors. Although planning is at an early stage, the project will follow the opening of new Chinese and South Asian galleries in November and an Islamic world gallery next year.’

‘You could send [Stanley Greene] on a job where things wouldn’t be expletively unfolding in front of him and he would figure out a way to evoke the mood and the emotional feel of a place. One such picture is of that woman in Chechnya, capture through a windshield. He somehow singled out this one individual that seemed to sum up the mood of the place at this moment in time.’

‘At issue is a collection of roughly 160 Native American and native Hawaiian objects the school has housed at the Peabody Essex Museum since the late 1940s. The collection was largely unknown to tribal leaders until about two years ago, when PEM director Dan Monroe warned them the Newton seminary planned to sell roughly 80 of the collection’s most valuable objects.’

‘“Every institution has a different capacity to complete these steps,” said National NAGPRA Program Manager Melanie O’Brien, adding that the maximum penalty for noncompliance is around $6,000. “They’ve had some challenges.”’

‘If you care about #OpenAccess, you should care about #NetNeutrality. There are obvious reasons why: After all, there’s no point in putting your preprints online if potential readers can’t afford to connect to your site. Pricing the web up means moving it out of the hands of those who need it most. It hinders the free flow of information and works against an informed citizenry. But there is another, subtler danger that comes from ending net neutrality: losing not only access to information, but the habit and expectation of access. A good example of this can be seen in the case of #PapuaNewGuinea, where people have access to more and more information, but might never learn that they could look for it.’
