Lecture Notes, Winter Break 2006:
Giving Details Which Help Us Understand One Another -Diversity in Our Discussion Group - This piece reproduces an e-mail exchange between Aisha Welch and jeanne (before transform_dom existed), in which Aisha's reaction gives jeanne important data on which to base her reply. Expanding Our Discussions Beyond Our Local Community -Jury Selection - This piece reproduces e-mail (before transform_dom existed) between Talia Baran and Gordon Fellman, the author of the text Talia was using at UWP, Rambo and the Dalai Lama. Reviewing Rawls' Theory on Justice and Fairness -Different Perceptions of Justice - The Power Point presentation is on the Society for Industrial Organization and Psychology Inc. website, consulted on December 26, 2005. You may want to run through this form of the lecture. It's very good. To move from one slide to the next, just click in the lower left hand corner of each slide. The notes for teachers give much greater detail and references. If you are planning to work on a Distributive Justice box project, you will want the more extensive notes below. But you might want to share the PowerPoint lecture with one of our workshops so everyone will understand the box sculpture project.
- Self Test on Justice and Fairness - This piece reproduces e-mail from transform_dom that shows how our discussions yield actual and useful data. This is important as we try to understand deeply what we can justifiably conclude from our discussions. You also need to understand this process in order to more accurately understand the extent to which you agree or disagree with what your texts say.
Our Discussions on transform_dom Yield Snowball Samples -Snowball Sampling As We're Doing It - This piece reproduces e-mail from transform_dom that shows how our discussions yield actual and useful data. This is important as we try to understand deeply what we can justifiably conclude from our discussions. You also need to understand this process in order to more accurately understand the extent to which you agree or disagree with what your texts say. In the Matter of My God Is The "Right" God -Mythos and Logos and Religious Arrogance This piece reproduces e-mail from transform_dom that explains mythos and logos as they permeate our discussions. jeanne's response is based on Karen Armstrong's exlpanation of the belief that one is "right" in fundamentalist religions. Some evangelical Christian churches are fundamentalist. Some are not. The issue of "knowingness" should permit you to differentiate. The "arrogance of knowingness" is not shared by all members of fundamentalist churches, since the church has a hard time keeping its members always in consensus, as Atwood writes in her novel, The Handmaid's Tale.
