Cardinal Mahoney's Cathedral:The Cathedral of t he Angels

The Cathedral of the Angels
Intimacy and Solidarity: What Does It Mean?

A new $200 million dollar cathedral has just opened in Los Angeles. To the Glory of God? In this painting I have attempted to combine the spirit of Patrick Graham's philosophy of painting and art and the death of art and the rediscovery of painting with the philosophical and social theories we have been discussing of the tension between the individual and the community, intimacy and solidarity, authenticity and normative prescription, the silence of denial and the poverty of tradition unexamined.

For further development of both the painting and the issues see Theory and Life Experiences: Art with Patrick Graham and Painting Is Dead: Rediscovering Painting

American Society of Criminology Annual Conference
Chicago, Tuesday, November 12 through Saturday, November 16.
Our first session is Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m.

Participants by Alphabetical Index Link to Alphabetical Index of Participants. Then link to C for Curran and scroll down to Curran, or enter T for Takata. She's second on the list, so you won't even have to scroll. Link on the session number for a description of the session and for links to abstracts.

Jeanne and Susan have papers for four slots. That means that we can include students in most of those spots. If you are interested in attending and/or joining in the presentation, you need to let us know, so we can work together on the presentations. For me and Susan, the ASC is one of our primary professional associations. The opportunity to participate in this conference is an educational experience you will never forget. For some of you, employers may assist with travel funds. Maybe the school will help. But we need to move on this very quickly. Susan and I do not have any special funds available to get any of us there this year. So give a fund raiser! But reservations will need to be made soon. jeanne

Interim Evaluation Report on the Dear Habermas Project The interim report is offered so that students can look at the evaluation design and have meaningful input for the Spring 2002 Evaluation.

Grades and Learning Records - First Semester Report Enrollment is complete as of Fourth Week roster. Some comments are up, but many more will go up on Monday. I started with the comments files. Did 04, 05, 06, and 07. That got the middle ones in up first. I'll go back tomorrow to 03, and then to the lectures that have comments. And then I'll put up all the ones from my files that hadn't gone up yet. It may still take a few days. Sorry, jeanne.
