Is there a Future for Museum Ethics?
In 1925 the American Association of Museums, the largest professional organization for museums in the US, adopted a “Code of Ethics for Museum Workers.” Since then the professional code has been rewritten and revised twice (most recently in 1991/2000) and now all museums that wish to be accredited must create and follow their own codes. Yet many museums have recently been in the public eye for what is perceived to be questionable or even unethical behavior. The Delaware Art Museum was recently c…

The presentation you’re about deliver could be career-making or career-breaking. Robert Hellmann discusses the key elements of successful business communications for diverse career (and job-search) situations, including: A “cheat sheet” of rules to follow in your busines…

Targeting A Great Career: Achieve Satisfaction in Your Next Job
Many job seekers pick their next job target based on "that's what I've always done", "that's what I'm good at", or "that's where the money is". Yet it is not often that we take a step back and methodically test these assumptions, to see if other paths are both possible and might bring us more satisfaction. Knowing what you like to do, what you’re good at, and where you want to go in life-- these are keys to planning a career move that will be rewarding and "right" for you. Robert Hellmann, car…

Up!: Manhood, Democratic Medicine, and Walt Whitman's Secret Health Writings
In 1858, Walt Whitman published under a pseudonym a series of articles comprising a book-length manifesto, "Manly Health and Training," which appeared serially in The New York Atlas, on diet, exercise, and the future of American health. The series came out at a critical juncture in US history, and this newly rediscovered series encapsulates many of the great debates that helped define the health sciences, then and now. It also offers a rare glimpse into a "lost" year in the life of Walt Whitman.…
