I like the blocks of color. Could that be a Japanese print influence?
And I like the blending of the colors, and the shapes. The people look like little dolls that might roll about.
I particularly like the little boy in the foreground. What a story he must have to tell! jeanne

Recommended Readings for jeanne's Classes:
- Adverarialism and Mutuality Up Front and Personal This is a follow up to the USC Professor e-mail that Tina sent in. The Teacher Who Practiced Loving is another one that Tina sent us. It deals very directly with the importance of mutuality in our lives and the lengths we sometimes go to to meet those needs.
- Exam Questions: We have an academic forum for the discussion of exam questions. Be sure to take advantage of this forum for clarifying the questions and for help in interpreting the resources. You can do that by e-mailing your comments and questions to jeanne.
Love and Peace Class:How does "The Teacher Who Practiced Loving" story illustrate our searching for the paradigm of mutuality?
Statistics Class:Does the "Withholding Compliments" paper deal with quantitative or qualitative data? What difficulties of analysis does this kind of data present?
Theory Class:Some of the classic theorists to whom Ryave et al. trace their study are: Hobbes, Rousseau, Durkheim, and Cooley. Who are these classic theorists, and how does Goffman come in here?
Distributive Justice Class:Is the compliment a scarce resource? Would it be a scarce resource withint the mutuality paradigm? What does this suggest about the scarcity of resources? How does "The Teacher Who Practiced Loving" illustrate the scarcity of resources?
General:How do you think Henry and Milovanovic would interpret "agency" and "structural context" in connection with the "Withholding Compliments" paper?
This is a series of readings in which we will exam the issue of political spectrum, left to right. I have centered it around the upcoming publication of an expose on an anthropological crisis. This is just about to break. I have included a link to a message by Donna Haraway, whose work we will be studying, and will include conservative responses. Do start reading, though. There's a lot to assimilate here, and you'll need to guide me by your questions.
