Structural Violence That's Hard to See
- The Internalization of Structural Violence
Watching ourselves repeat the violence we have felt turned against us. We sometimes call this identification with the agressor. Example from our discussion of Jacob Lawrence's Firewood # 55.
- Easy to Be Confused by a Spurious Relationship
Discovering spurious relationships in our own thinking. Example from discussion of Jacob Lawrence's Firewood # 55.
- The Problem with Remembering from the Perspective We Were Striving For
Unfortunate tendency to ignore the good memories, which might have held us back from struggling for new achievements. We tend to recall and reify the struggle. We forget there was joy along the way, if not specifically for us, at least for others.
- The Origins of Structural Violence I put up my notes on this. There are spelling errors and incomplete thoughts. But by putting it up before I have a chance to edit it, I am offering you a chance to see how I write, and to join in the creation of this piece. Notice that I am taking our class discussions as a point of departure, and incorporating them into my writing. By joining in this discussion, you are joining in academic discourse. Remember that I am thinking this out as I write it. jeanne
- Structural Violence in Our Own Academy Because we are discussing structural violence, becoming aware of the ways in which he harm each other by our failure to listen in good faith, we are hearing more local narratives of structural violence in our own institutions. These local narratives are important at bringing us to awareness, so that we can create change that will promote a more honest search for justice in all our relationships.

- Death Squads in Global Perspective Web site on the book includes definition of death squads, table of contents. It's an edited collection. I don't have it yet, but will probably want to get it. this certainly pertains to taking structural violence all the way. jeanne

Microsoft and Corporate Victimization
- Create=DestroyArticle featured by Encyclopedia Britannica - on Web Art.
- Boston Museum's Exhibition of Gauguin and the School of Pont-Aven You may want to compare the use of color and style by these postimpressionist painters with that of Jacob Lawrence and of William H. Johnson. Do you see a similarity of feeling? Compare to Patrina Smith's comments.

Another Suggested Project: For Mothers' DayA paraphrase of Nicole's idea from the poetry listserv:"Why not read Elizabeth Barrett Browning's "How do I love thee?" "and write 14 reasons why you love your child? "The 14 lines make a somewhat sonnet. Pictures make it pretty." Pictures that the child can later color make it fun. And children often complain there is no Kids' Day. Why not take this chance to tell some child you love him/her, that you care about all our children? We wouldn't have mothers without children, you know.From Bartlett's quotations:"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace . . .
I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! ---and, if God choose,
I shall love thee better after death."Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Gun ControlHere's an abstract of a paper proposed by Martha Wing, UWP, for the Midwest Criminal Justice Association Meetings in Chicago, October, 2000.
On Monday, 10 April 2000, Martha Wing wrote to Susan:Susan,
Here is the abstract of my paper. Tell me what you think.
Anyone interested in assisting in a joint effort on researching and writing a paper that is for midwest criminal justice association in Chicago. The topic of this paper will be on the gun control debate. I plan on presenting both sides of the debate and the violence resulted from handgun manufacturing. I intend to take the stand that we need stricter gun control laws, based on the number of children who die from gun violence each year (this will also include gang members). I also want to present information on how the manufactures of guns produce weapons that should not be sold to the general public, and how these assault weapons are only being used to kill. If you are interested, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
