The Language War: DoD Funding and Critical Language Study

Adam Federman | The funding of language study in the United States is largely dependent upon the needs of the foreign policy establishment. Thus, on the rare occasion that Americans are encouraged to study a language other than their own, which is itself rather infrequent, it is for the expressed purpose of, oh, defending the nation, deciphering intelligence, or if one truly makes it to the big leagues, carrying out covert operations as an undercover agent. more...  0 Comments

An Old World Artist for the New World Order: Fra Angelico at the Met

James Jackson Jiveass | Unfortunately Angelico's work looks even worse in reproductions, which goes far to explain his fame. The reproductions look like Hyppolite Flandrin, the nineteenth-century French painter who painted the nineteenth-century French idea of Fra Angelico, and Angelico's fame is all in the reproduction, sizzle without a steak. This show is supposed to proceed chronologically, but there's nowhere to go: Angelico was selling the Angelico brand even before Flandrin, he got the formula down early and spent the rest of his life delivering on it. What next, a Fra Angelico liqueur? more...  3 Comments
