If My Mind Had A Window

A Twenty-something in pictures

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Art history straddles the digital divide. Its pedagogical practices have been transformed by digital technology, but its scholarship remains wedded to the printed age. … Art history is invested in the monographic book as the prime vehicle for transmission of knowledge and academic advancement, and this bias is reinforced by tenure and promotion standards that privilege books over other types of publications.

Hilary Ballon and Mariet Westermann. “Art History and Its Publications in the Electronic Age.” Rice University Press (2006). 

There are only a couple open access, online art history journals, but they are limited in scope. ArtHistory.us aims to add to their numbers.  Our field can move past print publication bias, and slowly but surely, it will.

Be a force of change by submitting an article to ArtHistory.us. Let’s create a new kind of journal for an emerging type of art history.
