UChange Begins!

This winter and spring our UChange Network is beginning a pilot project in social innovation design at New York University’s MAGNET Center with Professor Ricki Goldman. We are aiming to expand this to a collaboration with the Oslo University College of Architecture and Design and the EngageLab at the University of Oslo, and eventually to other partner institutions.


A group of graduate students working with Ricki on designing social improvement projects for youth are developing a model online platform to connect young people who are willing to teach their special skills to those who are interested in learning them. At an early session, Ola Erstad from Oslo and I linked in by skype video chat to Ricki’s group at work. We tested out an app for recording the video call, while a student onsite documented with a higher quality video recorder.


Among the larger aims of the UChange project are a better understanding of collaboration and learning in the context of studio-based design work, and particularly insights into collaborations across age- and background- diversity. We will be documenting the collaborative design process with video and records of online contacts and dialogue, from multiple points-of-viewing, across multiple timescales, and with insights from theories of culture and social activity. You can follow some of this work on our FaceBook page. Other periodic updates will appear here.

Dear sir,
I am a Chinese English learner in a small town. I am writing a thesis on intertexuality. Your work Ideologies, Intertextuality, and the Notion of Register Norwood: Ablex Pub. Corp., 1985 is very helpful for me. I eapecially need your defination of the intratextuality to support my study of the wife images in the Bible. So I tried very hard to find this book but I failed again and again. Could you tell me where I can find it? Is it available in electronic form which is more convenient? I tried to write you an email but your mailbox that I found online is not available anymore. So I am trying here and looking forward to your response. Thank you a million!

Yours Sincerely,
Rain in China
