On Tuesday, September 15th, 2009, the IE School of Arts and Humanities joined the College Art Association. The College Art Association promotes excellence in scholarship and teaching in the history and criticism of the visual arts and in creativity and technical skill in the teaching and practices of art. The CAA facilitates the exchange of ideas and information among those interested in art and history of art and advocates comprehensive and inclusive education in the visual arts. The CAA also honors accomplishments of artists, art historians, and critics and articulates and affirms the highest ethical standards in the conduct of the profession.

The IE School of Arts and Humanities is particularly proud to join the CAA's fellow members which include artists, art historians, scholars, curators, collectors, educators, art publishers, and other visual arts professionals. The CAA's members also include university art and art history departments, museums, libraries, and professional and commercial organizations.

The IE School of Arts and Humanities is especially excited about the potential that this alliance holds for its Bachelor in Art History. "The CAA has a long tradition, since 1911, as a professional association which aims to cultivate understanding of arts," said Macarena Ventosa, Director of the IE School of Arts and Humanities' Bachelor in Art History. "Although based in New York City, its members, concerns, reputation and influence are international in scope. It is a wonderful opportunity for IE University to get in touch with other artists and scholars of the world of arts and to diffuse our message."

The IE School of Arts and Humanities' Bachelor in Art History is designed for art lovers who are interested in exploring art's different forms and expressions across cultures and throughout history. We are geared to young minds who wish to develop an international vision and a critical spirit in the interpretation of art and its professional setting. The degree is characterized by its international mission, an interdisciplinary and personalized curriculum, and its emphasis on contemporary art.

IE Business School No. 1 worldwide in the WSJ MBA ranking

Written on September 19, 2009 by Felicia Appenteng in IE Humanities Center

Madrid, September 16, 2009. IE Business School is the No. 1 business school worldwide in the Wall Street Journal ranking of one-year programs. This result further consolidates IE Business School's position as an international leader in the field of management education.

The ranking is based on the opinions held by some 1,300 MBAs students from 48 business schools on the quality of their programs, and the leadership and management skills they have acquired. It also took into consideration the experience of 735 alumni who had graduated 2 years earlier, and who provided opinions on the impact of the MBA program on their careers, the quality of their MBA and the opportunities it affords to develop leadership and management skills.

This year the IE Business School International MBA program has students from 68 countries, making it one of the most diverse MBA programs in the world. In order to leverage the international experience and take learning beyond management, the program includes modules designed to foster critical thought coupled with a capacity for teamwork and networking. Students are immersed in activities that include workshops on communication led by actors from Shakespeare\\\'s Globe Theatre, or sessions led by professors from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, associated with architects like Norman Foster, David Chipperfield or Zaha Hadid. Furthermore, sessions on humanities provide insights into the Arab world, Indian and Chinese civilizations, and contemporary culture.

Macarena Ventosa en su post What does art teach? defiende el valor educativo del Arte, y va más allá, justifica el Arte por el valor educativo que tiene, citando a Elliot Eisner.

Blanca Riestra en su post Contra Larsson sospecha si Larsson debería ser clasificado como literatura, ya que los libros de Larsson carecerían de una serie de propiedades resumidas como sigue en palabras de Blanca Riestra: "valores literarios", "materia ardiente".

Ambas utilizan un argumento muy similar: identificar determinada propiedad trascendental del Arte o la Literatura (condiciones universales y necesarias, que no dependen del cuadro o del libro en cuestión, sino en aquello que un cuadro o un libro es) y en un caso justificar el Arte como tal o dar por injustificado como literatura un libro en concreto.

Ambas no tienen razón. Creo que no hay una propiedad del gran Arte que sea "enseñar" y que no hay una propiedad de la Literatura que sea "valores literarios" y que los definan. o Tampoco que al menos sean parte esencial de su definición (ninguna de las dos piensa que Arte sea simplemente lo que enseña y que literatura sea simplemente "materia ardiente") o sea condición necesaria aunque no suficiente.

Gaspar Atienza, Profesor Asociado en IE School of Arts and Humanities

El conflicto del Sahara Occidental, por su duración y complejidad, exige planteamientos pragmáticos acordes con la legalidad internacional. La pluralidad de actores -Marruecos, Argelia, el Frente Polisario, España, Francia, EE.UU. y la ONU, entre otros- y de intereses contrapuestos requiere buscar una solución que, como dijo el enviado de la ONU a la región en 2008, Peter Van Walsum, tenga en cuenta «la realidad política y la legalidad internacional». Para ello es necesario interpretar el derecho en un contexto social, político y económico cambiante, e interpretar la realidad social a la vista de los derechos humanos, de la seguridad y del porvenir de los pueblos saharaui y marroquí.

La comunidad internacional se juega mucho en este conflicto. Si debe contribuir a resolver un histórico conflicto colonial al amparo del principio de autodeterminación de los pueblos (que significa la independencia o la restitución de la integridad territorial, como es el caso de Gibraltar y de las Malvinas) y de la histórica vinculación entre Marruecos y el Sahara (en particular entre las tribus saharianas y el sultán), también debe ser capaz de anticiparse a cualquier posibilidad de que la región se convierta en un nuevo refugio de terroristas y bandidos. Los estados fallidos en los que terroristas y proscritos se hacen fuertes porque el estado no llega -donde éste pierde la soberanía y por ello deja de ser estado- perjudican a toda la comunidad internacional y especialmente al pueblo marroquí si se localizan en el Sahel.
