Message from Francine Smolucha:
Dear Olga, ISCAR, and xmca members,
I just joined on to the xmca listserve.
Since you are currently working on presentations for the
ISCAR conference in San Diego, you might consider finding
a time slot when I could present on "A Vygotskian Approach
to Counter-Terrorism and Building a World of Peace."
You should know that in June 2002, I presented during the
ISCAR Congress President's symposium in Amsterdam
by invitation. I was not an ISCAR member, I did not submit
a paper for review, and I did not even know the Dutch
psychologist who was President at that time. (The ISCAR initials
were first introduced at that time - there was a slight different name for the group)
I can send you a proposal, references, a vita, whatever you need.
Given the timeliness, and seriousness of the issues, I would be discussing,
you might want to consider adding my presentation.
Michael Cole, Jim Wertsch, Vera John-Steiner, and others in ISCAR
are familar with my work on Vygotsky's theory of creativity and play since the 1980's.
They do not know that since 2000, I have been developing a Vygotskian
approach to Peace Studies and Counter-Terrorism.
Let me know if you are interested. Regards, Francine
