Re: [xmca] Al Andalus as a model for *{ }*

Both Larry and Christine.

I have continued thinking about ways to make clearer affinities across
discourse communities. I have thought of two ideas with respect to the
recent interchanges.

1. Do you think that it is possible to write up a journal-length paper that
your takes on the synergisms among traditions that you see? Quite apart from
interest in MCA, this sort of topic should fit with the new Valsiner journal
on integrative psychological and behavioral sciences. Two potential places
to get it out.


2. Might it be possible to put together a "distributed, virtual course
syllabus" of the sort that we did a few years ago on Vygotsky & Co. on xmca?

Either could be very helpful.

And while you are at it, what does it take to get serious discussion going
with the
social representation folks out there in xmca-land? (I am reminded because I
using some materials by Sandra Jovchelovich in my current grad seminar)?

Thanks for passing along Rene's intro, Larry. The integration of art into
our conversations in recent years, along with performance and play,
certainly are
important and Rene's thoughts are always interesting to read.
