I would like to suggest that protest doesn't need to be on the side of a building or shouted out loud in a crowded gathering. As we have discussed in the the refusal to accept the complicity of denial, it can be enough to keep us aware that we simply scribble that protest of complicity on a simple drawing, pinned up somewhere nearby. That, too, can relieve the frustration and strengthen us towards not being complicit in domination and injustice.

Collaborative Writing Article

Overcoming Adversarialism: A Collaborative Writing Article by the CSUDH Graduate Theory Project Workgroup. Link updated January 15, 2002.

We have until February 5, 2002, to edit, add end notes and bibliography. I will begin later today to edit the article by adding end notes, identifying theory connected to the issues discussed. I would appreciate if you would follow that and make your own suggestions.

We had to get this done with lightning speed. So consider the title. Let's see if we can come up with a better one.
