The next academic year for Los Angeles public school students will begin mid-August — after two months of virtual summer school — but whether the fall begins online or in physical classrooms remains unclear, L.A. school district officials said Monday, May 4. Open enrollment summer session will begin in mid-June, said Superintendent Austin Beutner during his weekly update  launched after schools were forced to shutter for the coronavirus pandemic. “The 2020-21 school year starts on August 18,” sa...

Peruvian Singer & Rapper, Renata Flores, Helps Preserve Quechua with Viral Hits on YouTube

Ten years ago, a study by David Harmon and Jonathan Loh showed that in 30 years’ time, the world had seen a twenty percent decline in linguistic diversity. Indigenous languages and local dialects have continued to dwindle, in the U.S. and around the globe. “There are a lot of pressures in the world that are enticing or even forcing people to switch from generally smaller, more geographically restricted languages, to larger languages,” Harmon told National Geographic, “especially global l...

Watch Jean-Luc Godard’s Filmmaking Masterclass on Instagram

As the last living major French New Wave director, Jean-Luc Godard has become a kind of oracle for younger filmmakers and cinéastes. Despite having turned 89 last December, he remains in a sense what film scholar David Bordwell not long ago called  "the youngest filmmaker at work today." When Godard started working in cinema just about 65 years ago, it didn't take him long to make his name by breaking its rules. Ever since, he's warded off complacency by continuing to rethink, at the most ...

The Art of the New Deal: Why the Federal Government Funded the Arts During the Great Depression

It’s odd to think that the gray-faced, gray-suited U.S. Cold Warriors of the 1950s funded Abstract Expressionism and left-wing literary magazines in a cultural offensive against the Soviet Union. And yet they did. This seeming historical irony is compounded by the fact that so many of the artists enlisted (mostly unwittingly) in the cultural Cold War might not have had careers were it not for the New Deal programs of 20 years earlier, denounced by Republicans at the time as communist. The New D...
