Topic of the Week:
Uniting Our Communities to Stand Strong for Democracy

This week the Chair of Sociology, Dr. Fumiko Hosokawa, asked if we would include the department's schedule of Spring classes so that you could plan your next semester with our professors. Of course, we would. That is part of investing love in our world and "the world exists because we love it," Jonathan Lear, Love and Its Place in Nature.

love and peace, jeanne

  • W. J. Faupel's Art:

    Flying Fish over Suburbia, by W.J. Faupel, at www.faupel-art.org

    Reconstructing New Orleans???

    W.J. Faupel has a Website on which he sells his work for charities. I would like you to check out This Is Not a Joke - Ceci n'est pas une blague, because we have referenced that painting of Matisse before, and he gives an explanation on the site. I love his fish. As we plan the Naked Space Exhibit for this semester, you might write and ask him if he'd like to take part:

    Small print of Faupel's This is not a Joke Ceci n'est pas une blague

    I think his "The Birth of Order" would be a wonderful piece for our Interpretation section. Someone in statistics want to contact him?

    The Normal Curve
    Art By W.J. Faupel

  • the-artists.org Good quick reference site with many of the artists, art schools, and visual approaches to present social issue that we discuss. Added April 8, 2005.

    Invitation and Map for Love 1A Naked Space Exhibit for Fall 2005.

    You can link on Love 1A and get the page explaining the hypertext poem. And you can link on love, on helping, on governance, and on interpretation and get the page explaining each of those sections. I realize the size is too much, but I can't redo it tonight. Sorry. No more time. But please play with what is up and start thinking about our hypertext poem. jeanne

    Here's the image in normal size:

    Collage Model for Love 1A Naked Space Exhibit

    Image for Poster.

    Collage model from Stampin' Up's idea book & catalog, 2005 | 2006, at p. 189. I was at a gathering of arts and crafts people who do stamping to learn how I could introduce stamping techniques for our exhibition projects. It wasn't until I went to order materials that I saw this collage, and I spent the next hour or so, with Reiko Sakata helping me, finding all the tools we need to make this into a hand-made book cover, so that each of you who would like to can make hand made books in our workshops. Or boxes, or framed collages, or whatever.

    As I worked at scanning the photo for our website today, I realized that it would be a wonderful poster and invitation and main page for our Naked Space Exhibit this semester.

    Academic Support and Resource Links

  • SquiggleResource Literacy

    • Urban Legends Reference Pages. They post rumors and scams and phony e-mails circulating, to offer you a quick check. It worked for me. I entered "Fat Boy" as a google seacrch, and when I saw the Snopes.com link, I knew it would help, and it did. To not check your sources is as grievous as to plagiarize someone else's information and writing. the-artists.org Good quick reference site with many of the artists, art schools, and visual approaches to present social issue that we discuss. Added April 8, 2005.

    • Plagiarism Watch www.streetgangs.com site. The intelligent and effective use of resources means that you have to be careful not to plagiarize other people's material. We have several files on plagiarism, but I think the one that might make the most sense to you is this complaint on streetgangs.com. They give you samples of sites that have taken their material without citation, even at colleges, and they also give you examples of sites that have used their material with proper attribution. I find the irony poetic, and hope that their message will get through to you the importance of attribution. Dr. O'Connor on his Mega Criminal Justice site led me to streetgangs.com and noted that others frequently hack into the site. For that reason I have created a backup copy for your use in case you cannot access the actual site. Please be sure to attribute any citation to streetgangs.com. jeanne Backup.

    Using Academic Language Effectively

    and Careers

    • Resumes:

    • Letters of Recommendation:

      • Letters of Recommendation: How to get me to respond to your request. Many of you need letters. If you will follow this format, I can do them quickly and make them good.
      • Dog Letters If you do not give me adequate information, but do manage to get my attention, you may end up with a dog letter. That is a letter that says that you work well with people, that you are enthusiastic, that you persist at getting things done, and that everyone likes you. Of course, my dog gets along well with people, brings his ball to them, is enthusiastic, and persists at getting them to take his ball. Everyone likes my dog. That's a dog letter. It's so general it could be about my dog. jeanne

    • Career Options You Might Not Have Considered

      • visual media and their interdependence with other means of knowing to understand that we are not totally rational creatures deciding things apart from our feelings and values. Wolfowitz (new President of the World Bank to aid developing countries AND principle advocate of the Iraq War) might feel very differently when he is exposed to visual and aural images of the poor developing countries that have not before been his primary concern. So we want to know how best to present those developing countries visually. And we might find that we can have a career doing that sort of thing, so it does reflect on us as individuals.

    That Was Fun! Sneaky Strokes and Flying Good Dogs

    Flying Dog is also a painting by Zhang Kai. Best I've ever come across to illustrate our site with magic numbers and unicorns and whipped cream cats and now, flying dogs:

    • Index of Nice Things We've Said to Each Other

    • Flying Good Dogs: Whenever something happens in class that works out well, that inspires you, that helps in studying, whatever, take a few minutes to send us an e-mail. We'll post it where all of us can learn from it, including other teachers.
