Francine, please go to our website: and check on the themes
of the congress--I will re-route your msg to the planning committee.

>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
