An article by James Cuno, President and CEO of the J. Paul Getty Trust, from November 19th:
From the article:
…we aren’t conducting art historical research differently. We aren’t working collaboratively and experimentally. As art historians we are still, for the most part, solo practitioners working alone in our studies and publishing in print and online as single authors and only when the work is fully baked. We are still proprietary when it comes to our knowledge. We want sole credit for what we write. Scientists, social scientists, and engineers don’t work this way. They work collaboratively and publish jointly and quickly for professional review.
