Life Affirming Work and Social Justice. Symposium.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on life-affirming work and social justice that was conducted as part of a conference on human resource development (HRD). "Doing Good or Doing Well? A Counter-story of Continuing Professional Education (CPE)" (Laurel Jeris, Linda Armacost) reports on an exploratory study in which a critical literature review and comparative analysis of CPE curricula offered by medical and legal professional associations revealed how political, cultural, and institutional practices within the professions and their associations support or injure various groups. "The Ambushed Spirit: Peace, Violence, Downsizing, and Implications for HRD" (Daniela Truty) summarizes a study in which an investigation of downsizing from the perspective of the person who was separated from the job yielded evidence suggesting that the experience of downsizing is not uniform among affected employees but is instead dependent on contextual factors and other constitutive elements of what it means to be a person in the workplace. "Family, Culture and Community Work: A View from the Margins" (Phyllis Cunningham, Regina Curry, Matthias Hawkins), which uses the techniques of participatory research and study circles to analyze life-affirming work in an empowerment zone, identifies the following types of life-affirming work: mother work; cultural work; and community work. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
