Confusion: Identity, Economics, Culture

Confusion: Identity, Economics, Culture

The wild abstract above is my expression of confusion. My husband's face is in the upper left hand corner. My mother-in-law, the crocodile, appears diagonally across the image. Print it out and draw your own over it. Or pick up the file in whatever drawing program you have. Call up the file, or use the earlier version Or give it to your kids to do. Whatever, but use art to express what you're feeling. If my drawing is Confusion, can you draw Calm? Peace? Send me your drawings, or those of your friends, siblings, parents, children. We'll make up a gallery on Dear Habermas.

    • If you're working on a thesis project, it is your responsibility to follow through on the notes we have provided on site for you to define the statement of the problem, the background, and to begin a review of literature. Please don't ask me what you should do. Use the examples we have given, and make an effort to do something. Then report to me what you have done, so I will know what you have learned. There should be no excuse for weeks without communication unless you have left on vacation.

      Reporting what you have done does not include telling me that you've read lots of stuff. What did you learn from what you read? What stood out? What did it tell you about your project? I will be on campus occasionally. I'll try to post the dates, so you can use those occasions to meet with me.
