Art We've Been Studying and Painting:

Art as Expanding the Imaginary

  • Art Project I. Fall 2001 Some of the logic of using art to expand the imaginary is discussed. A few resources given. And a description of the mechanics of our first project.
  • More Icons for You to Use

  • Icons I added an icon for the Art section and for the Weekly Index, and one for Susan's classes. More guelphs soon. Have to catch up on Africa first. jeanne
  • Art for Peace

  • Students' Art for Peace Since I have asked to include all four classes in this project, I expect that we will continue to include artwork as an integral part of our classes, just as we did last Spring. It has been my experience in most of these projects that you want to keep your own original art work. That mean's we'll reproduce it for exchange with students in different parts of the world. As I understand it, we would exchange with one other school. Maybe we'd like to exchange with more than one school, which would permit us to exchange with students at different levels. We'd just have to pay for more reproductions. We'll decide when classes begin. jeanne

  • Religion and Civilisational Dialogues I have already put up an URL to the Islam21 Site. This represents the first step in our undertaking to adequately read on Islam in our disscussions of social justice. July 16, 2001.

  • You Gotta Read This

    Privatizing Corrections

  • States Pressed as 3 Boys Die at Boot Camps By Michael Janofsjy, The New York Times, Sunday, July 15, 2001. p.A 1. backup
  • The Presidential Election, 2000

  • How Bush Took Florida: Mining the Overseas Absentee Vote By David Barstow and Don Van Natta Jr., Sunday, July 15, 2001. Front page.

    I know that some of you said you didn't want to read another word about the election. Understandable at the time. But now analysis is beginning to show up, with some data. Particularly in Sociology of Law we'll need to discuss social justice and what the election means to the democratic process.

  • Posner v. Dershowitz by By Ethan Bronner, New York Time Book Review, Sunday, July 15, 2001.

  • FIRST CHAPTER: "Supreme Injustice: How the High Court Hijacked Election 2000" By Alan M. Dershowitz.

  • Balancing Left/Right Perspective

  • Economic Policy Institute
  • Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

  • American Sociological Association Homepage Scroll down to the bottom of the file. Type careers in the search box and pressGO. That will pull up about 22 documents for you on the ASA site. Good background information on possible jobs for which sociological knowledge prepares you.

  • A Student's Guide to Careers in the Helping Professions This career guide came to my attention when I followed a link to the diversity materials posted on the Peace Education Commission list. The Office of Teaching Resources in Psychology of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology.

    This is an excellent resource on several levels. It will help you to broaden your ideas of helping, perhaps opening some new pathways for you to consider. The orientation is psychological and educational. Some of you in sociology may wish to expand this document to include the many careers around criminal and social justice.

    The document also provides an excellent example of a well thought-out and useful resource guide, for those of you considering Master's Projects instead of theses.
