A Justice Site
Discussion Preparations, CSUDH:
The Doctor in the morning spoke a little too quickly. Cysts in both breasts were drained at 4 p.m. yesterday by the surgeon. But there were complications with one. They are doing a chemical analysis. But I don't have to go back until October 6 for more tests, which means this is minimally a reprieve, and that it is definitely not a tumor. And maybe it will still mean no cancer, no surgery! I am pleased to report that my husband did not faint, and got me safely home where I promptly collapsed in exhaustion. Thank you all for your prayers. love and peace, jeanne

Jeanne's Graduate Hour on Tuesday, 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.,
will meet in Sociology Conference Room in Sociology Office
if there are more of us than fit in jeanne's office.
Undergraduates are welcome to the discussion groups.
Recommended Readings for jeanne's Classes:
- Papers, Essays, and Lecture Notes on Theoretical Issues
- Pass? or Prepared? on What a Sociology Major Ought to Know About Theory Suggested as a Pre-Test and Post-Test for Theory. Good idea to read through this to give you a sense of what you want to learn in theory. Answers sketchy now. We'll add to them over the semester. Online.
Rodriguez, Ryave, and Tracewell, "Withholding Compliments in Everyday Life and the Covert Management of Disaffiliation"
Accepted for publication in the Journal of Contemporary Ethnography. Uploaded January 15, 1999.
I'd like you to read this with Fellman's adversarialism in mind. How might we use this paper to suggest transformative approaches to replacement discourse?
Link added week of September 18, 2000.

- Graduate Review of Theory
Over next few weeks we'll be reviewing Critical Theory and W.E.B. Du Bois.
I will be using James Faraganis' Readings in Social Theory: The Classic Tradition to Post-Modernism, McGraw Hill, 2000 edition. ISBN: 0-07-230060-4 (pbk).
We ordered 10 copies of Faraganis at the CSUDH Bookstore. They should be in within ten working days. Meanwhile work with Site Summaries. jeanne
I started this review with critical theory because that is what I teach, and place W.E.B. Du Bois next, because students have already come in for help with Du Bois. These graduate hours are face-to-face time for student requests for review help. As much of my explanations as I can manage to write up will be available on the Dear Habermas Site for all students to use. I'll link them from Graduate Review. Uploaded September 19, 2000. Online.
