"There was a great explosion of different kinds of performance in New York in the 1970s—not just in traditional theatre spaces, but in dance, video, performance art, and other forms too. It was a very exciting period, and it was much more centralized than it is now. Everybody knew each other. I lived in the same building on St. Marks Place as Lee Breuer and Ruth Maleczech. Richard Foreman had a salon on Sunday afternoons in the 1970s. We saw the same people at these performances, and we saw each other at the cafés."
Founded during a fertile New York moment, Bonnie Marranca's journal continues to cover performance critically, not academically.

Scholars are banding together to try to upend academic publishing. My colleagues and I recently launched Open Mind: Discoveries in Cognitive Science, a new Open-Access journal through MIT Press.

Richard Aslin writes about the science of the tax-dollar double dip: Much research is federally funded, but if you want to see what you paid for in a scientific journal, that’s going to cost you—again.

Our Most Shared Article (based on social media sharing and clicks) in March was from OCTOBER. Editors David Joselit, Carrie Lambert-Beatty, and Hal Foster ask, "Is it possible, or desirable, to decenter the human in discourse on art in particular? What is gained in the attempt, and what—or who—disappears from view?" Artists, writers, critics, and philosophers respond in this Questionnaire. This selection is freely available to read through the end of April.

We are inundated with stimuli every day. How do our brains make sense of all the data flooding our senses? Rosa I. Arriaga (Georgia Institute of Technology) explains her study, which appeared in the October 2015 issue of NEURAL COMPUTATION.
