- Intertextuality and Foundational Scholarship
Our use of the term "intertextuality" means reading texts across disciplines and across perspectives (scholars, professionals, students, teachers) for a synthesis of understanding across their differences and similarities. Intertextuality also includes an understanding of the value of all texts, including those produced by teachers and their students, as providing a richness and an accessibility to the learning.
By "foundational scholarship" we mean theory, research tools, and scholarly literature, again, across disciplines and across perspectives. Research and explanatory tools are not limited to traditional texts and writing, and oral/aural expression, but also include the arts.

- Author IndexThe author index was not kept up during the Spring 2000 semester. We have decided, however, that it is important enough that we need to catch it up. Years from now, when you come back to Dear Habermas, you're going to want to find your publication, and this index will be the easiest way.

- Questions about life, work, and what it means? Consider what you mean by "helping" people, whether you want to move more closely towards counseling, talking solutions, or administrative and management solutions, whether you want to make systems work, or help people work, whether you want to work in a large, relatively secure agency or institution, or work more freely on your own. All these choices matter in your career decisions. But the good news is that career decisions are never over. Our lives today can take many paths. We'll have a file up on this soon. Nag jeanne at CSUDH, if you need it.
- Finding Support within the Academy
The academy has all the same range of problems as the rest of the world. We suffer illness, disability, grief, victimization. Project Ask will help you find ways to connect around some amazing obstacles we encounter. Visit the file, Staying in School through Challenge
There are extensive materials on Dear Habermas to help you with writing. There wasn't time to update them all this summer, so we'll be working on that through the Fall.
