Raw Painting


Okładka książki: Raw Painting


Raw Painting: "The Butcher's Shop" by Annibale Carracci (Kimbell Masterpiece Series) / C. D. Dickerson III, Kimbell Art Museum (November 12, 2010) ISBN-10: 9780300166408

Born in Bologna, Annibale Carracci (1564–1609) was one of the most revolutionary artists of the late Renaissance. Even before turning twenty, he rebelled against convention by investing his art with a sense of naturalism uncommon to paintings of the period. His early painting The Butcher’s Shop, a cherished work in the Kimbell Art Museum’s collection, marks the beginning of Carracci’s artistic journey and remains one of his most powerfully naturalistic works.

Homo Academicus


Okładka książki: Homo Academicus


Homo Academicus / Pierre Bourdieu, Stanford 1988 ISBN 0804714665

Pierre Bourdieu is perhaps the most noted French sociologist of recent times. His prime contribution to sociology is an elaboration of the concept of capital in sociological contexts. Bourdieu has studied several fundamental categories of capital and the ways in which they can be exchanged and transformed into one another, including: cultural capital (arising from prestigious cultural goods produced and positions within cultural institutions such as universities), social capital (arising from networks of social relationships and influence), and economic capital (ownership of money, stocks, etc.). Cultural capital is described in three forms: the embodied state (in which culture is literally "embodied", as when a scholar internalizes knowledge during the extended period of a doctoral research program), the objectified state (when culture is made manifest in objects, such as paintings or books), and the institutionalized state (in which cultural status is recognized and legitimized by institutions, as a degree conferred, or a prestigious appointment held).
In his famous analysis of academic sociology Homo Academicus, Bourdieu analyzes tensions and trends in French higher education, with particular attention to the historical circumstances of the student protests in May 1968. His analysis focuses on how the backgrounds and agendas of different academic groups first led to conflict and then uneasy transitions in 1968 as a result of changes in university demographics and economics. His statistical analysis and discussion of various opposed forms of cultural capital in faculty provide insight into the ways that academic elites tend to react to changes and pressures on the circumstances of higher education. This insight will be subsequently relevant to the discussion of the crisis in scholarly communication.
